If that's a predictable deadlock, I think a minimum expectation is that
the system should notice it and throw an error, not just hang.  (Then
the error could give a hint about how to work around it.)  But the case
Bruce has in mind doesn't seem like a crazy use-case to me.  Can't we
make it "just work"?
