    One of the significant problems with GCC is that it (in many places) does
    not use well-understood algorithms, which makes it difficult for people
    who do compilers for a living to understand (and ultimately contribute) to
    GCC.

And then you've got people like me who understand the old GCC algorithms
completely, but never did know much of anything about the "well-understood"
conventional algorithms.  ;-)
