According to my understanding of the dictionary definitions,
``unsafe'' means primarily ``the opposite or reversal of `safe' '' and
secondarily ``not safe.'' This coincides with Moon's reading.
Therefore, I propose we use the term ``nonsafe'' which clearly means
``not safe.'' This, coupled with the already very explicit definition
of ``unsafe,'' which explains that unsafe code might actually be safe,
should take care of his objection.
