Well, I regret helping then. I was specifically led to believe that if
I helped resolve the emacs crash, then you would consider addressing
the original bug report. 

If you are going to be selfish and only address your personal issues,
then I will *never* again contribute to this effort. I am more than
competent to write all the elisp code I need for my own support.

That is your choice. Others have other needs and other preferences.
You need to stop being so arrogant and narrow-minded.

The problem lies with (almost) any magic file handler. Gnutls.el code
is broken. You are either intentionally or unintentionally being
pig-headed and missing the broader point that the code breaks with
almost any valid magic file handler.
