Thi is really not ideal, since this is for a argument-parser, --help 
should print the help and then exit.

If i interpret it correctly, a call to Runtime.terminate() (as I am 
doing right now), is the only and correct way?

I would think so.

Still, it can be done..

int main(string[] args)
{
  int retval = 0;

  try
  {
   ParseArguments(args);
  }
  catch(ExitException e)
  {
    // Silent
    retval = e.retval;
  }
  catch(Exception e)
  {
    writefln("Error: %s", e...);
    retval = 1;
  }

  return retval;
}

void ParseArguments(string[] args)
{
  .. parse .. calls CmdHelp();
}

void CmdHelp()
{
  writeln(...);
  throw ExitException(0);
}
