There is more sugar in one single can of Coke than in an entire 25 lb bag of salt. The kind of bugs which really bother me these days are not the kind of thing that will get fixed by updates. 😝

Issue closed, will not fix.

Cool. Great write-up. Good job FSF. Now if only IceCat ran on the same platforms as Safari, so that your article could have some relevance to the reader.

Do not allow this language (Ada) in its present state to be used in
applications where reliability is critical, i.e., nuclear power stations,
cruise missiles, early warning systems, anti-ballistic missile defense
systems. The next rocket to go astray as a result of a programming language
error may not be an exploratory space rocket on a harmless trip to Venus:
It may be a nuclear warhead exploding over one of our cities. An unreliable
programming language generating unreliable programs constitutes a far
greater risk to our environment and to our society than unsafe cars, toxic
pesticides, or accidents at nuclear power stations.
