It's not only about performance. It's also about false hits. If you
apply debbugs-gnu-search for "flymake", in the package "emacs", you get
1009 bugs. Most of them are not about a flymake problem, but they are
hit because "flymake" belongs to the list of features, compiled by
report-emacs-bug automatically.

This shall be improved by excluding such false hits, because you want
only the bug reports about flymake problems.

Best regards, Michael.
