Yes.  Probably the right thing is to keep 1 for general failure, since
it will be too hard to track down all of the places it is used.  So we
should start new specific exit codes at 10 or 16 or something.

Would you care to prepare a suitable patch ?  I haven't looked at the
code recently but perhaps you can transform the domain not found
exception into a specific exit code in a single place.
