Wasn't MSEIDE by Martin dealing with exit codes in a different way? been a
logn time since I used it but I recalled something about exit codes in it.
If it is an OOP architecture (msegui) how does he deal with it? Sorry this
is a little off topic but, different tools deal with things in different
ways and sometimes it is nice to learn from the neighboring tool to see
what elegant solutions they came up with.
