This is just a dream for me, the bug I've fixed this month as a
professional software developer (in my real job, nothing that has to do
with twisted) were not reproducible, not just by me, but by the
customers too. I found it after nailing in the crash dump for several
hours and there's no way I could ever hope to write a testcase to
reproduce it reliably even after I've fixed it (furthermore not all
hardware can reproduce it at all).

We may argue about new features, but for bugfixes it makes no sense to
require them, and my mind isn't going to change about that.
