I think this pretty much sums up the point I was trying to make. I simply

should not cater to the bugs of applications running on top of it.

I've declared my intent to make Hurd as robust as possible in this sense.
I hope other will share my intent. But now we should let the code
speak for itself.

That's my point too. There can be compile-time symbol that forces reboot too :-)
