Surely it is not as hopeless as all that!
All we need is a generally agreed-upon ``error recovery test suite'' which
could be used (like the SPEC performance suite) to judge the quality of
various error recovery schemes/techniques/mechanisms.
Come to think of it, I vaguely seem to recall that someone (S. Graham et.al.?)
wrote a paper a few years back in which just such a competitive evaluation
Now... has anybody got the reference?
