 No.  What you see as a bad thing others (including me) see as a good
 thing.  I _want_ to be able to say: "okay, try sleeping; but I realize
 that sleeping for longer than some reasonable time if I'm not getting
 anything to begin with will probably not get me anything at any point
 so tell me the allocation really failed and give me the opportunity to
 clean up before *I* decide what I want to do."
