I can see this being useful in the case of relying on a third party  
to produce the exit code and then passing it through.  Also it gives  
you the opportunity to perform cleanup in the exit method before just  
bombing out to System.exit

I have no problems as I can imagine a general usecase for this -  
still like to hear what others think
