Since some people prefer to keep current behavior (for a while?)

How about just keep current behavior until ZE2? (PHP 5?)
ZE2 will break some ZE1 behavior, I suppose.
Making exit() to return "return code" is nice and would be
OK for ZE2. IMHO.

We really need to consider removing/changing legacy feature &
behavior at some point...

Error Level and Message handling in current source is one other
thing I would like to change :)
Do you want consistent error levels, error id, localized error
messges? I guess lots of you do ;)

I agree. It's possilbe do this now, w/o much BC problem.

die()/exit() is identical in ZE1. How about make them separate?

If type is integer, die() for print and return exit code and exit()
for only return "return code".
