Following this train of thought, what does the suckless community have
to say about sanity checks via <assert.h>? Do you abhor them or deem
them unnecessary? Count them in the SLOC metric or just ignore them?

I ask because I have added an assert() sanity check to my DWM patch,
thereby adding 2 SLOC; but I feel much safer with the assert in place:

What do you think?

From listening comes wisdom and from speaking repentance.
