I have filed a couple, and voted for several existing ones. Always had
something like "it's too late in the release cycle, WONTFIX" as an answer.

While I do stumble across VC++ bugs fairly often (that compiler
seriously has way more bugs than other major C++ compiler, both language
bugs and internal errors) I simply do not report them anymore.
What's the point if they're all going to be marked WONTFIX?

Those are library bugs.
The problematic bugs to get fixed are those in the compiler itself.

Codegen bugs tend to get fixed eventually. Minor C++ bugs sometimes get
fixed if you're lucky. Core C++ bugs? they're all closed, unless the bug
is so major that the feature doesn't work at all.
