Good point!

To collect and discuss standard return values I'll start with some:

0 -> success (obviously)

1 -> wrong number of arguments, usage gets printed

2 -> malformed argument in cases where the script can determine that

3 -> operation not possible, i.e. necessary delegate application not available

4 -> operation failed, i.e delege application returned != 0
