You can crash pd, or the equivalent thereof, banging a [until] without
anything else. Now what? Yes, it would be better if neither [until] nor
self-deletions would ever cause problems nor ever had gotchas, but both
[until] and self-deletions are in use right now and people can learn how
to ensure that they don't crash, and it didn't take *them* any guarantee
from any authority, and not even an impression of foolproof safety,
authority or not.
