i am curious if you have any opinion on this thread.  Currently just

Are you in favour or against doing those checks in other functions
handling sequences?

I don't have any firm opinions on this. I do note, however, that your
motivation for signaling an error was contested. So I wonder whether the
cause for this is strong enough to make that change. But I'm willing to
defer to people who use these features more than I do.

I also don't have a strong opinion. Bounds checking is usually helpful, if it
would help those who are using these functions. Otherwise, I wouldn't make the
change "just to make the change", even though it sounds like a good idea.
Thank you.
I am fine with not adding this patch.
