Depending on timing, this scheme might accidentally fail to fail, but it

to rip it out entirely, not try to band-aid it by suppressing SIGPIPE ---
though likely we need to do that too.


This is something that should work, period. It should be a showcase for the code we ship because it shows how serious we take data integrity (backups/restore etc...).

+1 for turning it into something irrefutably as close to perfect as humans can produce.
