The issue does seem to deserve their attention, yes.

I'm not sure what data you're asking for.  The argument here
is about whether these programs are "at fault" in the first

Let's put it this way.  If one thinks that gcc -O2 should
support only minimal C99 semantics and should not support
Annex H LIA-1 wrapping semantics, then all the
wrapv-assuming programs are obviously "at fault", so why
would data collection make any difference?  At most you'll
find "faulty" programs, and they won't count.

For example, GCC itself assumes wrapv semantics internally,
but according to the -fwrapv opponents GCC is obviously "at
fault" here and should be fixed, so that shouldn't count,
right?  (If that's the way the data will be collected, I
think I know how things will turn out.  :-)
