Since startup occurs _very_ early, before main(), it is best to _never_
fail in startup. It's very difficult for a user to determine what the
problme is when their application never makes it to main().
You can set a flag in your startup to indicate the failure and then fail
"normally" in your modules API's due to a startup problem.
If, on the other hand, it is important that the application not proceed
if the startup fails, you can call System_abort().
