Yes, sure. Though is this a blocker for the package to be sponsored ? I mean
this is typically something that can be fixed in a subsequent upstream release.
The reason why I am being a bit dense on this is that there are lots of exit()
calls in the library and changing those would require some real API design
changes. Otherwise, I would have provided a patch myself already.

I will batch forward this issue to upstream with the patch when you approve it.

Thanks for your time.
