Considering the plugin in question crashed (locked up) my entire Xorg 
session and I lost data, I can't say it would be a dis-service.

Personally (not being the most experienced programmer) I would prefer my 
plugin not build if I had made some very bad programming error, so that 
potential testers don't get a bad taste in their mouth for my plugin.

In a general sense I agree with you though.
