In libsupc++/eh_terminate.cc, line 40, change "std::abort" to
"__gnu_cxx::__verbose_terminate_handler". No preloading or anything else
required. I plan on testing this exact change, once the autocrasher is
finished flopping around (about two hours from now).
I would therefore like to posit that computing's central challenge, viz. "How
not to make a mess of it," has /not/ been met.
