> Remove most `System.exit()` calls in various security tools and only leave one in the `main` method. This paves the way to convert them to JSR 199 tools.
> Note: before this change, the behavior of a successful `main()` method execution is not consistent. Sometimes the method returns silently, sometimes a `System.exit(0)` is called somewhere. After this change, the method always returns silently. This makes sure that existing programs that calls the `main` method directly will continue and does not exit the VM.
