We all have a very well defined job in this project, and particularly:
- I do produce the original silly bugs.
- You are in charge of adding regressions to your past fixes of my bugs
- Dmitry is in charge of finding why our common code breaks.
- Wolfgang is in charge of making all the involved fixes compile
- Gilles is in charge of making the result run on bugous and/or sluggish

Ok, all in all, my situation is the best one. Good.

Niklaus already built most of this infrastructure for us, only the
automated patching part seems to be missing so far: 

We would also have to alleviate the burden of his server by providing
some dedicated hardware to do that, though.
