It's an implementation detail and cannot be used safely by Lisp users.
The danger of using it is it can make core Emacs crash. We also don't
want the risk of someone overriding it.

Maybe we could try to detect it and print something more meaningful in
the backtrace as a compromise?

Also, unrelated but can I be added to the savannah emacs group? My
savannah account is aaptel.
