It's treated and prioritized as a bug. As with any persistant bug, I
expect it would be cause to replace maintainers if it went unaddressed for
too long and caused issues. Certainly a fair bit of pressure is applied
to fix it when it comes to the FSF's attention in the cases that I've
seen, but I've never seen a GNU software maintainer refuse to fix it, so I
don't know what happens if it comes to that.

Oh, okay, I completely misunderstood. Sorry about that.
