There lies my problem.  A base goal is that my server should be able
to withstand free user programming with untold numbers of users doing
the most stupid and horric things.  I know the sort of twit code that
newbie wannabe programmers can write, and I want the system to stay
alive and responsive even with it is stuffed to the gills with that
stuff.  Of course I also want to have it at least attempt to be
logically consistant at the same time.
