FWIW, I'm not emotional about this, but it seems like a really good
opportunity to change @system to @unsafe, since @system appears almost
nowhere in existing code (because is default).
'system' is a weird name for 'unsafe'. I've had lots of colleagues
tell me they think it doesn't make sense... and I agree. It's a silly
name, and defies the industries established terminology for no reason.
We have exactly one opportunity to correct this, and this is it.
