  I feel I need to bring up the issue that DejaGnu is 30 years old, and
it's two maintainers are either trying to pay bills, or trying to
retire, or both... This problem will effect more projects in the future,
not just DejaGnu. I'd love to see if anyone would like to become a
co-maintainer, who preferably will be actively working for a few decades
still. I think most people on these lists make their income from working
on the toolchain, but some of us are still volunteers... and getting
older every day...

  There is a patch backlog neither of us have even looked at, sorry. I'm
willing to put some time into this, but I think you all realize the time
involved to adequately test this. I'm not sure I have enough disk space. :-)

  Personally, I tried to find funding to refactor DejaGnu in Python,
since Tcl is unmaintained too, but nobody was interested.
