I would vote for just making edoc return non-zero on error (like you 
suggested) by default. Always.

Since, as far as I understand your original problem description, there 
hasn't been any difference in the exit code of the edoc beam process 
there can't be any scripts that depend on it today, so backwards 
compatibility is not an issue.

If there _are_ scripts/makefiles that check the exit status already, I 
bet they all think edoc exits with a non-zero exit value on errors.
