Also, giving it the ability to self-improve wouldn't do anyone any good
if it didn't have a goal to improve itself towards. (Maybe it could
start to perform self-modification at random, if it was specifically
designed to do so - but random changes would most likely just break
things, and even "conduct random changes in your own code" is a goal.)
