Well, for example, in the writefile.c case (last commit), it would probably
mean that a file full of garbage is written, and Blender does not tell the
user (as it just quits writing the file with all the returns).

Maybe in such a case, at least some thought should be put into a meaningful
error message. Though, with so little memory, the error() dialog would
probably not work, either, and well, the kernel would probably be killing
blender anyway ;)
