Thank for you for reading the guide!

Some people will always disagree about what's obvious.
That's not a problem in itself. It only becomes a problem if
you don't have the patience to deal with it.

I suppose this could be fixed, yes, so if you like please open issue.

I don't think it's a very important bug to fix though because there is
an easy workaround. You should be able to work around this by adding:

  set -e

on the first line of your script.
