You're right, I'm being inconsistent. :-(  I withdraw my objection.

There are cases where sys.exit() is easier than returning an exit code, e.g. when the error is discovered deep inside some other code. But it's probably better to raise a dedicated exception in that case and catch it in main(), rather than just calling sys.exit() deep inside the other code. It's probably too fine a point for a tutorial. Sorry!
