It's good to know that there's never been a crash in the entire history 
of the C programming language due to a bug in a new function causing 
runtime breakage.  It just proves the point that I've made in the past, 
that programmers using statically typed languages are far smarter than 
those using dynamically typed languages.  The former just compile their 
code by lunchtime and then head to the pub, while the latter have to 
stay in the office all afternoon testing.
