If I call sys.exit with a long value under Python 2, it prints it. I count
this as a bug because:

1. int and long are supposed to be as similar as possible.
2. When you're using Hy (which implicitly makes all ints longs), this sucks.

[ERROR]: Your autotools build scripts are 200 lines longer than your
program. Something’s wrong.
