To what extent do you expect to be able in future to create small
synthetic testcases, that can be contributed, for bugs that are reported
in future in confidential code?
What sort of tests are the ACT-written ones you're contributing?
(Synthetic for customer bugs, tests for ACT found bugs, tests for compiler
