That's by and large true, but there are other APIs that need to be called on 
exit (xo_finish?) and in other scenarios where flushing, etc is needed. If you 
don't do that, you don't get the output you expect (which broke uptime/w 
several months ago..).

Also, typos with the meta language into the xo_emit calls have bit is more than 
once ;(.
