Exit status of 0 for failed backups #422

When a backup fails the exit status of the "backup" script is 0.

There are notifiers that can be triggered for a failed (or successful) backup, but
is it possible to somehow return a non-zero exit status when something goes wrong?

ie. so the failure can be seen/handled outside of "backup"?

(Our particular problem is when doing pre-migration backups during a deployment, because "backup" doesn't return an exit status upon failure our deployment script has no idea anything went wrong.)
