I beg to disagree.  It's impossible to be absolutely sure it won't crash, 
since we're open to users installing random stuff there.  And I think the 
"complexity" of a supervisor is at least trivial.  Making sure the phone 
never becomes partially unusable is much more important to me than the 
tiny difference in complexity a supervisor would add.

      So many of our dreams at first seem impossible,
       then they seem improbable, and then, when we
       summon the will, they soon become inevitable.
