I think that's the solution I'd like.

This is something I would use, for sure. I still have this in my .tcshrc:

    set ignoreeof=2
    # No warning about background jobs if it is 2!
    unset ignoreeof

So 3 seemed like the minimum "useful" value, but then you'd be hitting
^D almost as many times as it takes to type exit. :)
