Filing this bug after a conversation with jst on irc. We currently assume that all SetFoo methods succeed. If it fails in an OOM situation, we need to return an error from there and handle the callers appropriately. Assigning to Boris who will be doing similar rework here in the future.
1.1alpha is frozen. Unsetting milestone and will retriage in a few days when I can make a realistic assessment of the situation.
Created attachment 132323 [details] [diff] [review] Partial patch This does not update all callers; someone would need to do that...
No plans to work on this any time in the foreseeable future, so to default owner.
