Visafilter: can I stay in France if I quit the job for which I have a work visa?

I dislike my job. I'm toying with thoughts of walking out. It's a contract that ends in early May, though my visa is valid (for whatever reason) until July. My visa type is listed in the remarks section as "travailleur temp."[temporary worker], if that matters.
I am aware that I can't hold any legal job here other than the one I have the visa for, quitting or no.
For a few irrelevant reasons, I need to stay in this country until early May regardless, even if it means staying in the job.
So what's the deal?
My hunch leans towards "no consequences" because it would take an inordinate amount of effort on the state's part to do anything about it, because of France's generally very worker-friendly labor laws, and because of the fact that I have three random non-working months tacked onto my visa anyway, but I would like to know from someone who actually knows a thing or two whether there would be any ramifications.
I'm looking for facts here, not advice per se. Thanks!
anonymous because I don't know if I'm actually going to do this, and because it concerns quitting.
