Fixing this is hard. There are several ideas floating around but all of them
have their disadvantages
(https://gcc.gnu.org/ml/gcc-patches/2012-09/msg01373.html and
https://gcc.gnu.org/ml/gcc-patches/2012-11/msg00164.html). Unless some new
brilliant contributor appears and starts passionately working on this, this is
not going to be fixed in the near (or medium) term. If you know such a person,
please let us know.
