What? Couldn't it be ported to use the latest Gtk 3, with
Unicode support, DBus integration and ALSA?! ;-)

Use a program that's easy to exit. A "controlling xterm" is
possible, but an xclock window, xosview, xload or anything
else "simple" will do. Otherwise, use the exit function of
your preferred window manager or desktop environment (via
the last "exec" statement in ~/.xinitrc or ~/.xsession).
Maybe even ye olde xconsole program will work...
