Also, I routinely write scripts that have no `if __name__ == '__main__'` line at all, they just run - no-one should ever import them, so it makes no difference. And I exit (in multiple places) using `raise SystemExit("reason")`.
My point being that yes, there are *lots* of ways of writing Python scripts/programs. Why "bless" one of them as being somehow superior?

People write main entry points that are not exactly this?

It's not clear that exiting with the return value of main() is the most Pythonic thing to do -- it's more of a C idiom that doesn't seem so useful when exceptions exist.
