Hands up everyone who dislikes debugging, and given the choice would rather
fiddle about than debug.
IMHO, majority of people prefer to code than debug.
Hence, freezing will get some people to debug who otherwise might not...

I don't know whether freezing would cause more people to sit on their hands
than it would cause to debug - I only mention the other side of the coin.
