The reason I do not think affirm would fly is because it shares the
most problematic trait with assert(): it can be comipled out.

There was at least one bug we found and fixed in a piece of code
that came later in a codepath that had an assert() in it.  The buggy
code (IIRC, it was added way after the assert() was written in an
unrelated patch) was unknowingly depending on a side-effect of an
innocuous function call (i.e. assert(func_tion(args) == expected))
made in the assert condition, and the bug did not reproduce in the
developer's environment.
