What? This is a very disturbing statement. I want the program to execute my
orders EXACTLY as written, even if I get messed up sometimes. I often write
orders that are designed to fail if certain things are not true, and
there's no way the program is going to be able to know how that is supposed
to operate.

I want specific documentation on when this behavior occurs. I'm willing to
live with limited command options, or odd conditions, but I'm very unhappy
if there is a nondeterministic outcome from my orders.
