I suppose I figure that if someone's entered it into GNATS, it's affecting
some existing code, though it's hard for me to guess how widespread the
problem is without reading gcc-bugs more than I do. I've thought for quite
a while that it would be nice to have an ombudsman volunteer, who would
watch the bug reports and tell the developers what users are asking
for/complaining about most frequently, so that we would have a better idea
