This also applies to the second patch: I'd feel more comfortable keeping
the error exit codes for the start commands. There might be users
already relying upon this behavior. If start succeeds, we know we have a
freshly started instance. We actually rely on it a bit ourselves, for
migration to detect a bogus instance already running on the target node.

For the stop command, it's not as relevant IMHO, and I'm fine with
either way, but we might want to wait until the next major release as it
can be seen as a breaking API change too.
