No, it is an attempt to discredit false lines of reasoning about code
quality.  Software engineering theory aside, until we put the code into
real-world situations and not sanitized conditions, we have little basis for
claiming how it will work in the real-world.  And we certainly don't have
any basis under software engineering for deriving a claim, since we have
never applied any to the code.  And a mail server must be considered
reliable and solid in real-world use.
