Well that is still preferable to anything else.

It is preferable to a system crash, I mean.

So if there is no other last rather, I think this is really the only 
last resort that exists?

Or maybe one of the other things Gionatan suggested.

I think it's simpler but okay, sure...

I think pretty much anyone would prefer a volume-read-errors system 
rather than a kernel-hang system.

It is just not of the same magnitude of disaster :p.

Right, yes, that's what syslog says.

It does make it a bit annoying to be watching for messages but I guess 
it means filtering for the monitoring messages too.

If you want to filter out the recurring message, or check current thin 
pool usage before you send anything.
