There really is a show-stopper, which I have stated before.

Languages such as OCaml use -ENOMEM as a hint to run the garbage
collector some more.  I expect Haskell is the same.

It is not appropriate for libxl (or any library for that matter) to use
exit() as its method of resolving out-of-memory conditions.
