Because nobody has had the time to fix it. I have a fix in mind, but the
presence of many local changes in my tree makes such fixing difficult.
As is well known by now, getting patches approved is one of the biggest
(if not /the/ biggest) bottlenecks in GCC development. There simply aren't
enough experts to go around; the rest of us must wait in line.
I'll make ya a deal: you come move my furniture to my new place, and I'll
use the resulting free time to work on this bug. :-)
Would I had phrases that are not known, utterances that are strange, in
new language that has not been used, free from repetition, not an utterance
which has grown stale, which men of old have spoken.
