Current implementation of -qq does not allow suppressing exit status
messages without suppressing signal delivery messages, which is not good.
So yes, I'm inclined to agree.

Maybe -qq is not the right way to control suppressing exit status
messages, but what are the alternatives?  (ab)using signal number 0 in
"-e signal=set" syntax?  Adding a new syntax like "-e exit=[01]"?
