OK, there were regressions, but we didn't see until too late...

... because of how The Evil They handled the bugs ...

... which hid the issues during the proper time to handle it.

Too bad the WONTFIX bug that prompted your screed (and frankly, I agree with
the WONTFIX in this case) wasn't filed until AFTER THE FINAL DEVEL FREEZE.

Hey, if you didn't have time to test, that's OK. Not everyone does.
But when we're trying to figure out real issues, Rumsfeldian pseudo-analysis
based on *KNOWN* inaccuracies doesn't help.
