Ya, I just did, see my other post, tentatively "ENSURE()".

Frankly, I don't even like the name... "assert", in English, means to
"proclaim" or something like that, not to "verify" or "ensure" something.

I don't mean this as a criticism of smart_assert (more of a
self-criticism): I'm lazy, and I got exhausted and lost trying to learn
how to use it, and all those chains of parenthesisized statements give
me shivers. I just want something simple and lightweight for myself.
And for logging errors to a file, I'd rather have some LOGERR().
But that's just me.
