One reason for not calling sys.exit() is because on Linux, the default
implementation uses fork(), hence the address space in the chilren is
a clone of the parent: so all atexit handlers, for example, would be
called multiple times.
There's also the problem that fork() isn't MT-safe, making the
probability of screwups/deadlocks in various destructors/stack
unwinding greater.
