How so? We still have sys.excepthook, and can redirect stdout and stderr to
a log file, email it to an app maintainer, show it in a debug panel in the
app, etc... All these things work and are in-use today.

I also don't know how to make myself any more clear. Not once have I
suggested that the current behavior should remain the default. I've only
maintained that hard aborting the app is the wrong choice. And once again
I'll refer to my first post:

It would be nice to have an easier way than except hooks to be able to
detect and handle these cases, and I think exploring options in that space
is worthy of discussion. But I think qFatal is certainly the wrong approach
