Me neither.

If this optional exit code param was documented earlier, it's not there now.

I considered it, but then it occurred to me that anything in the list 
would become public knowledge and thereby no longer qualify for 
inclusion in such a list. ;)

More seriously, I used to maintain a list in a document titled "mode 
16", but I can't find it right now so I can't recall how you stumbled 
across "mode 16" or the other notes there.  I'll find it sometime...

I just filed a bug report on this missing element:

@ Mark Weider: where did you learn about the quit command supporting an 
exit code?
