What about a meaningful exit message?

"Out of memory" is a fairly comprehensive description of the problem.
In fact I'd say it's much more informative than "<random widget the user doesn't know or care about> failed to initialize".
If the user requested a target parameter that is beyond the capabilities
of the host system, a meaningful error message can be generated that
instructs the user on how to possibly correct the problem.
