This kind of usage is, I guess OK, if it's hidden from the
user as part of an language implementation, but it should
definitely not be exposed to the application programmer.
It's rather like garbage collection - or page table manipulation
ok for a very small number of system programmers to use, but
forbidden in regular applications
