I agree that we should use dedicated exit values, but I don't know which
ones we should be using. Should we collect/document possible exit codes
and their meanings somewhere?

This should probably not be a reason to reject this patch, but cries for
a followup patch that goes through the code assigning and documenting
exit codes for various failures.

Well, the full content of the file disappeared (beyond the general GPL
blurb) and was replaced with something new, so technically John's
copyright is not in this file anymore :-).

I agree though that it is not practical to record copyright information
in each file separately, that we have DVCSes for.

I would also agree that a central AUTHORS file or whatever would make more sense.
