Yeah, he is not the only one, although those are rare (this is my estimate,
from sifting through ~70% of -bugs-{dist,closed} for several months).

However, you can reply to a bug within seconds, and not get it fixed for a
much much longer period of time (this is my demerit sometimes :'( ), so I
don't think that solely the speed of replying to bug reports is an adequate
measure of a maintainer's competence in dealing with them. Note: I'm not
saying anything specifically related to Zed here...
