From Jargon File (4.3.1, 29 Jun 2001) [jargon]:

  bulletproof adj. Used of an algorithm or implementation considered
     extremely {robust}; lossage-resistant; capable of correctly recovering
     from any imaginable exception condition -- a rare and valued quality.
     Implies that the programmer has thought of all possible errors, and
     added {code} to protect against each one. Thus, in some cases, this can
     imply code that is too heavyweight, due to excessive paranoia on the
     part of the programmer. Syn. {armor-plated}.
