1) I'm already using a separate process where appropriate
2) when did I ever request a 100% crash-safe lib? All I ever asked was
to not crash when it can be clearly avoided (an assert implies that you
_know_ something is wrong and you could back out without taking the
process down with you)
3) why am I still replying to this thread? maybe you're right and I'm
already insane.
