I guess I like setting the status to 1 because it matches the status already used by the default exception handling, the value when you raise SystemExit("error message"), and the value used for most internal errors. However I did discover that the exit status is 2 if you give Python wrong CLI arguments or there is an OS error opening a script file.

I’m still rather unsure, only weakly in favour of my original proposal. Maybe see if anyone else has an opinion?
