This makes no sense from my point of view. Halt finishes execution of
the program. At that point, all memory previously allocated to that
program should be returned to the operating system (at least standard
operating systems do so), thus the leak may make no difference. The
difference between your version and the original one is that the
original finishes the program with some error code thus allowing some
error checking in case the program was called from some script, etc.,
whereas your version finishes with a result of 0 even if the processing
encountered some errors.
