[Openmcl-devel] (#_ _exit 0) on triple EOD

This seems a bit crude; there are multiple ways that CCL may exit,
but this way the user application cannot easily (portably)
set up hooks for it.

I seems as if triple EOD was meant to be an emergency exit, but
personally I use it all the time as a convenient manner of
quitting, which is also in line with EOD's usual connotations.

FWIW, SBCL handles EOD gracefully (calling its exit hooks)
and instead provides a :RECKLESSLY-P arg to its QUIT function
that makes it possible to force an immediate exit.
