Panic is very serious, but BUG and ASSERT, to me, are used to indicate some error in programming logic, if that error can be "fixed" during a debugging session then the ability to continue is quite valuable, especially if it takes a long time ot get to the BUG().

I really can't conceive a situation where it would be handy to be able to rectify a bug from within a debugger in order to carry on executing. I've never wanted to do that.

if it is not BUG, then perhaps we can introduce something like BREAKPOINT() that can be used for this purpose?
