oh, any exitcode <> 0 would be nice. Sending sigkill on debian gives a 137.

The point is, I rely on having a successfully executed command, if
exitcode is 0. In this case command is terminated, left garbage and
did not do its job and I go on like everything would be fine. How
should error checking care about such a condition / state?

Any ideas? And by the way, is such a condition in pure GNU/Linux
producible? Sigkill is quite brute force exit isn't it?
