[Doc-SIG] objections to renaming "--exit" option / "exit_level"

Does anybody use the "exit_level" setting ("--exit" option)? I'm
thinking of changing the names to better reflect the function.
A system message level threshold; non-halting system messages at
or above this level will produce a non-zero exit status at normal
exit. Exit status is the maximum system message level plus 10 (11
for INFO, etc.).
Default: disabled (5). Options: ``--exit``.
I think the option originally suggested by Beni Cherniavsky,
"--exit-status", is better. I'd also change the setting to
"exit_status_level". I'm sending this message to gauge the impact;
will this break a lot of people's systems?
