I don't see why this should be considered acceptable behavior.  Why don't threads have their own ThreadExit exception, rather than overloading the use, and therefore, the meaning, of the SystemExit exception?  As indicated by their names, sys.exit and the SystemExit exception should *only* be used to exit the entire system, not just a thread!
