I would definitely keep it. Code modifications can be quite fragile. Most
of the time things don't go wrong, but when they do, having these checks
makes it obvious to where the problem happened. Problems here is usually
some code mapping that got incorrectly flagged to be traced, when it
shouldn't be. Reporting these errors helps find what that was.
