John, why do you make this more complex than it needs to be? 

I don't need 99.9999%. I'm happy with less and I bet others are too.

If someone produces patches that add robustness without a lot of cost (performance or code complexity) then we're all better off. If you want to prove a point and ruin the library with crazy and/or pointless checks to get to 99.9999% robustness, I bet those patches will get reverted very quickly.

In other words, quit being some fucking pedantic. :) so you know I don't actually hate you
