We have observed that one of the world's best capability theorists and 
practitioners, intending to to write solid code with capability 
discipline, was tripped up by completion value leakage. I think it is a 
real problem, and I think it requires either some sort of declaration 
saying that no completion value should be returned from the function, or 
an explicit return as we have now.
