        Hans Nowak <a href=http://zephyrfalcon.org/weblog2/arch_e10_00850.html#e854>writes</a> about how python interactive shell should quit/exit
when you type 'quit' or 'exit'.
He also shows an example.
>>> class _Exit:
...     def __repr__(self):
...         raise SystemExit
...
>>> exit = _Exit()
>>> exit # exits the interpreter

  __builtin__.quit = __builtin__.exit = exit = _Exit()
