Panic stopping is not the problem.  It's panic stopping with the engine 
shut down for whatever reason and no longer turning the hydraulic pump to 
supply boost.  If you bomb doesn't hold pressure immediately after the 
engine is turned off,  you no longer have boosted braking if the engine 
quits while you're going at any typical highway speed.  You have unassisted 
hydraulic brakes.
