Ordinarily a good idea, but in this case it might be better without it. The only way this can matter is if there is a case where all other threads would return (thus stopping them) without any calls to `System.exit`. In that case, the earlier code would report a timeout, while the new code would exit with a normal (0) status. Not sure that's what we want.
