Agree - so what we did in the time that g77 still was a separate
development, was that we had a bunch of alpha-testers who beat on the
compiler with their favourite code (like I still do with our NWP stuff).

Perhaps we should ask for a new round of alpha-testers (especially those
with dusty decks - sorry, card reader not included) to do this
regularly.

If ever something comes up that breaks the compiler, we might ask the
victim write a simple testcase for the testsuite (with suitable
license).
