Clean exit would be easier to achieve with C++ rewrite by just throwing an exception in such a case. Not a (major) feature request actually, but that's what immediately came to my mind. I'll keep thinking more about possible feature requests in the coming days and report them if there are any.

I am moderately sure that Python port will soon be a viable alternative, and
therefore this problem will go away.
