 There is NO WARRANTY whatsoever if anything goes wrong, but let us know
 and we'll try our best to fix it.
 
+Rainbows! is extremely sensitive to fatal bugs in the apps it hosts.
+Each Rainbows! worker process may be handling thousands of clients;
+unexpectedly killing the process will abort _all_ of those
+connections.  Lives may be lost!

+Rainbows! hackers are not responsible for your application/library bugs.
+Use an application server which is tolerant of buggy applications
+if you cannot be bothered to fix all your fatal bugs.
