RE: scheduling, and gui clients (Win, Mac)

In fact here's a nice list of ideas to of things you might consider:
* Fail all calls
* Fail every Nth call
* Fail random % of the calls
* Fail after N amount of time
* Fail every call after the Nth call
* Fail if called by f() (This might be difficult to implement on Unix boxes)

Of course you can get even more complicated like saying, don't start
applying random failures until 20 milliseconds after the failure timer
starts, and various fun combinations of the above. :)

Nice! Yes, I think we'll do that.
