If Harmony contains a JIT, then it would probably be easy to
configure the JIT to insert "context switch" instruction(s)
between every two instructions it emits. Then we could write
tests that attempt to trigger memory model violations and
run thoses tests in this debug mode. That would go a long
way towards gaining confidence in correctness.
