The latest CloudMonkey 5.3.0 returns non-zero exit code when a CloudStack API fails.

It would be great to discuss if there are any specific error code it should return based on
the failed API, as I don’t know which ones to use. If I know that, I should be able to easily
implement it.

On shell (not as interpreter) it prints without any color and outputs errors on stderr. Errors
are more verbose now that include any cs error code and HTTP error code with the returned
json. Any discussions on this on what/how we can improve this or any patch contributions would
be great.

By config, do you mean global settings? I want to keep the tool simply but I’m thinking
of refactoring CloudMonkey’s code so people can write plugins for it that could control
it’s behaviour, color/themes, output styles etc.
