Heh, I have to admit, the first thing that leapt to my mind was a quote from jwz "Every program attempts to expand until it can read mail. Those programs which cannot so expand are replaced by ones which can".
Still, this seems to be very useful. The easiest way to hang a Linux system and needing to force a reboot today is to simply start up a random 3D application or game. Anything which helps developers track down these bugs is a good thing.
