But this is the whole point of discussions like this. It is NOT to fix a
FEATURE of PD, but to give warnings as what NOT to do to shoot yourself in
the foot.

If you know NOT to connect up a [bang( -> [until] without some sort of
termination means, then you won't do it... Or if you really need to
experience it first hand, then by all means do it. You probably will never
do it again...

Besides, this object is so old that to make a change like this would
probably break a large portion of PD patches that use [until].
