Most programs you use don't bother trying to detect or recover from sack

Emacs is different because it's programmable, and it must respond robustly to programming errors.

The current stack overflow scheme can't recover reliably
because it doesn't fix maintain invariants.

It works well enough now for people to get work done. Introducing modules should not break this.
