About 100 -- of course many of them are folks like me who are too busy to fix
bugs in their own lib :-( Anyway, I believe this was suggested as a possible
Library in a Week topic, although I'd worry that no one would get up in the

could even have some awards (t-shirts or other swag) for the most prolific bug
