It's a vitally important phrase when discussing anything related to C.

(Lua doesn't summon daemons, but it still has its own share of 'undefined
behaviour' issues as well. I think it would be amazingly handy to be able to
test for these in a debug situation and trap them as errors. For example, that
hoary old array-with-holes-in business --- I'm quite certain there's
production code out there that suffers from that.)
