We are all overworked. The bugtracker keeps filling.

None of us likes the accusation that 'FPC is stuck in the last century'.

But as Sven pointed out: there are many other things that also merit work,
and we're all just volunteers who do this on our spare time, as we have 
pointed out many times in the past.

Personally, I can't wait to see Joost's implementation of extended RTTI 
and attributes merged to the trunk compiler. 
Unfortunately, I don't have the knowledge to do it myself...
