Thanks for the hints Robert. I will definitely add that defs entry.

I’m a bit unsure about preserving an existing non-zero exit status. It seems a slightly more complicated and unexpected way of do it to me. But I cannot remember why I was originally interested in this issue. Do you have a use case where keeping the exit status > 1 would be good?

Also need to add some entries to What’s New.
