[Python-ideas] exit as a statement

An idea I have thought about for a while and it makes sense to me...
Python 2.4.2 (#1, Oct 13 2006, 17:17:08)
[GCC 4.1.0 (SUSE Linux)] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
'Use Ctrl-D (i.e. EOF) to exit.'
Argh! Do what I mean, stupid Python! And it is Ctrl+Z on Windows, not
Ctrl-D. So exit could be a statement that does the same thing that
sys.exit() does currently. Bare "exit" to terminate with return code
0, and "exit X" to terminate with return code X.
