[erlang-bugs] epmd exit status

I've noticed that in certain failure cases, epmd exits with a 0 status
code.  Things like -kill didn't work because there are still nodes in the
database, or it failed to bind to the port because something was already

If I were to work up a patch to change these failures to cause epmd to exit
1, would it be accepted, or is there a reason that it is the way it is?
