Yes -- see the explicit-exit-notify option on the man page (use the man
page on the web site because the documentation for this option was added
only recently).

The man page is up-to-date with the current 2.0.1 beta release, however if 
you're using 2.0, the "n" parameter must be defined (it can't be 
defaulted).  Just use 1 or 2.
