Sure, if USEFUL is what you want. Put the exit code in it.

    PS1='\u $? \w\$ '

Also, use the TTY name for your xterm title:

    case $TERM in
        /usr/local/bin/title `tty | colrm 1 5`

The session ID would be a decent choice as well.
Here's the /usr/local/bin/title program:

print "\033]0;@ARGV\007";
