The epilogue is executed as a seperate process after the job script
completes, so passing a return code through $? would be impossible.
Perhaps we could add another env variable with the exit value.

I apologize if I sound rude, but I'm wondering _why_ you need this.  The
purpose of the epilogue is to clean up the node after the job ends;
which is the same process regardless of job success.
