You can't change sys.exit, but you can build something yourself. You
have raw_input to ask the user something, and an if statement to make
a decision based on that input. You should be able to figure something

One other point: if you just want to exit, you don't have to call
sys.exit really, you can just let the script end naturally (break out
of the while loop and it'll end by itself). sys.exit is only really
useful if you want a special exit status.
