Sounds like ext:exit has been converted to do ProcessingTerminated, but
it shouldn't actually do that. This strongly suggests that too much has been
changed over to ProcessingTerminated; the original reason for converting
some uses over is still valid, because in order to work as a library, abcl
should avoid exitting.
