assertions (a question of coding style)

Hi everyone,

I'd like to ask for opinions about using assert() in Subversion
code to test for invariants. Right now assertions are used heavily
only in the APR testing code.

Personally, I like to use assert() for the "this can't happen" kind
of coding errors that can't be recovered from, then don't ever
define NEDBUG. Of course, this might not be very appropriate for
server code ...
