Patch for bringing back the MeeGo-style close gesture (swipe from top)

As the title suggests, after a little digging around I figured out a way to bring back the MeeGo-style closing gesture — swipe from any place of the top edge when there is an application on the foreground closes said application — to the Sailfish 3.

The Top Menu is still there unchanged and can be accessed by any other way (top to bottom swipe on the home screen, notifications area or lockscreen or just tap on the status bar).

Since I'm too lazy to create openrepos package, I will just post the instructions here. All you need to do is edit /usr/share/lipstick-jolla-home-qt5/compositor.qml

The first line we're interested in is line 786:

topAcceptMargin: largeScreen ? (SS.Screen.width - topMenuLayer.exposedArea.width) / 2: Theme.itemSizeMedium

What it does is sets the areas dragging down from which triggers the closing gesture. So, as quick and dirty solution — just make it equal to the screen width.

topAcceptMargin: SS.Screen.width

And another line is 1156:

|| appLayerItem.active

If you scroll a bit higher you'll see that it is a single item in the list of possible variants for opening the top menu. Since we don't need it to open when trying to close the running app, that line can be just deleted.

And that's it.

Here are the diff file and the modified compositor.qml. If anybody wants to create a full openrepos patch package — they're welcome.
