Agreed, but at the moment it does not, unless the status code is
non-zero.  I believe that the suggested command-line switch (which would
not change the default behaviour) would be beneficial not only to users
of TeXworks (which is a utility installed by default by TeX Live) but to
anyone/thing else who/that needs to determine automatically whether
something unexpected has occurred during a XeTeX compilation.
