Haiku does not handle flaky/bad ram gracefully

I had a good sized fight today with a functional windows machine that had a stick of ram that could best be described as flaky. It was a older p4 machine with 768mb of ddr 267. The windows install ran fine "seemed uneffected but slow" but haiku would go into a revolt of non compliane and KDL and GDB. I replace the failing sticks of ram but it occurs to me that haiku needs a way to isolate and ignore bad ram sectors.
I distreoyed all the error logs when I found the bad sticks as I knew what the cuase was. It was disturbing however to see windows boot and operate just fine while haiku had no stability in anything but desktop.
