The purpose of the examples is to illustrate the API, not to educate with
good coding practices, and direct exit() is completely acceptable in quite a
lot of situations.

Therefore, eliminating exit() is not a goal in itself: if it makes the code
simpler and/or more readable, 100% ok. If it does not make the code less
readable, why not, but there are more urgent issues.
