    Maybe if I call the sysctl "vm.crashmenow".  No, that will just make more
    people actually try it.  It might be doable as a compile-time option,
    since you wouldn't be able to run anything approaching standard on 
    such a system anyway.  I don't see much use for it myself.  As I said
    before, there are easier ways to manage memory that are not quite as
    arbitrary as simply refusing a potential overcommit.
