Confirm before closing Python console tab



I love PyCharm and I typically work simultaneously with many python consoles. Some of them are doing long calculations and some other I use them for experiments or random things. I also love that I could set up a very simple shortcut to close python consoles with ctrl+w (I like that it works like Chrome tabs :D).

The main problem is that there is no confirmation whatsoever when I close a tab. It happens way too often that I close a few random experimentation tabs with ctrl+w and by mistake, I also close some long-running ones. Since there's no way to move or rearrange console tabs within a "Python Console" window, it would be great to have at least a confirmation before closing a console. This confirmation is there for debugging windows, but not for simple console windows.

Am I missing some hidden settings or should this be a feature request?

Thank you
