Well, this is a volunteer effort. Nobody is required to fix bugs
or even respond to them. Each person responds to whatever bugs
they want. The "trick" is to find someone with the time and knowhow
to help with your bugs.

We do want -fprofile-arcs and -ftest-coverage to work, but there's
only so much time any one of us can devote to the project. The best
way to ensure that they work is to investigate any failures yourself
and send patches :-)
