Given the certain amount of frustration over the real problems that
didn't get solved until now, you can understand that, don't you?

I had my share of problems reported here, mostly with working patches,
some of which took many moons, sometimes years to get solved upstream.
So I think I understand some of David's frustration, although the
problems I reported were nowhere near the gravity of those Lilypond

So maybe the project leadership should try to improve the efficiency
of handling bug reports and of catering to the problems raised by
projects using Guile, as a means to lower frustration and make the
environment friendlier?
