Yes, I am aware of that tweak switch; however this time I'm more
concerned about the reliability of exit hooks as they are used
in two of the libraries I'm working on.

But why does it have to use _exit?

Or, as an alternative approach: can't the IDE set *quit-on-eof*
to NIL, with the default being T?
