In Python one can pass a string to the exit() function that will be
displayed and the program exited.
In Perl 6 I get:
To exit type 'exit' or '^D'
Cannot convert string to number: base-10 number must begin with valid
digits or '.' in '⏏hello' (indicated by ⏏)
in block <unit> at <unknown file> line 1
Would it be possible to special case when someone passes a string to
exit and give a better error message telling how to write that?
Better yet, could exit accept a string?
