making --status the default

Earlier this year, there was a discussion about the understated
--status option.  This option causes runtest to exit with an exit code
of 1 ("failure" to the shell) if an error is encountered in any of the
Tcl scripts. The thread starts here:

I would like to make --status the default so that runtest always exits
with an exit status of 2 if an error is encountered by Tcl.  This
seems like sensible behaviour and enables users to respond differently
from their Makefiles, build systems, etc.

I plan to leave the option there for backward compatibility, but it
would not do anything.


Cheers, Ben
