Description

While Status Icon offers an option to close the player to tray, it can't minimize it to tray. This makes it inconvenient to actually close the player - clicking the close button obviously doesn't work and neither does Alt+F4.

This is the same issue as https://redmine.audacious-media-player.org/issues/323, which was rejected. Before rejecting this issue, please consider that Foobar2000 offers this option (https://hydrogenaud.io/index.php/topic,116337.0.html), as did Winamp.

+1 from me for more convenience

I just worked a lot with the great KeePassXC application yesterday, porting all my passwords into a singe file.
It also offers a minimize to a system-tray option. So it is always be there when I need it but also closes when I want to be out of danger.

I love Audacious, it became my favorite audio-player over the past years. But using the system-tray option is always an trade off.
Whether I can comfortable close it to a tray or I can comfortable exit it when all music streams went trash.

So having an option to 'minimize' to system-tray while keeping the close bottom/short-cut active would make Audacious even more awesome!
