That seems overly final. We could change our code to return exit status
1 if there was a warning, or perhaps if no targets succeeded.

Other programs have the same issue:

  egyptian-gods% ls -d foo blob
  ls: foo: No such file or directory
  egyptian-gods% echo $status

  egyptian-gods% tar cvf foo.tar foo blob
  tar: foo: Cannot stat: No such file or directory
  tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors
  egyptian-gods% echo $status
  egyptian-gods% ls -l foo.tar
  -rw-r--r-- 1 ghudson mit 10240 Oct 10 12:46 foo.tar

We appear to be unusual in returning exit status 0 on a mix of success
and failure.
