Your point is correct, but the textmode IDE does survive compiler crashes
and you can continue development (allthough it's not recommended). It
could also clean up memory leaks in the past, it did heap swapping which
code is no longer present today.
Still, you should think twice doing not recommended things. You can be
100% sure compiler messages will break one time and you should think about
migrating away from parsing, rather than do more parsing.
