/**
 * This class is designed to cause crashes when various kinds of memory
 * corruption are observed. For instance, let's say we have a class C where we
 * suspect out-of-bounds writes to some members.  We can insert a member of type
 * Poison near the members we suspect are being corrupted by out-of-bounds
 * writes.  Or perhaps we have a class K we suspect is subject to use-after-free
 * violations, in which case it doesn't particularly matter where in the class
 * we add the member of type Poison.
 *
 * In either case, we then insert calls to Check() throughout the code.  Doing
 * so enables us to narrow down the location where the corruption is occurring.
 * A pleasant side-effect of these additional Check() calls is that crash
 * signatures may become more regular, as crashes will ideally occur
 * consolidated at the point of a Check(), rather than scattered about at
 * various uses of the corrupted memory.
