I'm pretty sure we should not need to manually deinitialize EGL, so it should be OK and practical to just drop all the exit handlers and sidestep the issue. At least, I think so. Trying to make exit handlers work as expected is hard and probably not worthwhile.

That said, I would worry that this may have been added as a workaround for some embedded device bug. Say some proprietary graphics driver fails to release a global resource if the process exits without first calling eglTerminate (or if it crashes). If so, Miguel would probably know about it.
