I'm not in favor of this.  PJPROJECT assertions have triggered on legitimate exceptions as well.

Do you mean they sometimes trigger assertions on non-legitimate exceptions?

I mean the assertions are used improperly.  Assertions are supposed to indicate that something should never happen.  However, the assertions trigger for normal error cases that should return an error code and not abort the program.

Sounds like you don't think it's worth the effort to try fixing pjproject's use of assertions?  Or are you just saying the improper assertions would need to be found & fixed before doing this to avoid causing massive number of testsuite failures?

[~coreyfarrell] I think it is worthwhile, if we fix their use of assertions.
