Assertions should never call abort.
Assertions should be just like any error,
possibly providing more information like a call stack.
Like in Python where assertions are just normal exceptions,
which can be caught normally including all call stack information
(which for example in our case are logged into a log file
which a customer can send us. So we get the best of both worlds:
An assert does not crash the app, the app can continue,
but we can still get the callstack information).
