Did I say that we are not going to support this?

I asked an informative question, with the purpose of figuring out how
urgent it is for us to fix this issue.  Do I really deserve a cold
shower for asking such questions?

I didn't say that, either.  And I couldn't really give any specific
answer to such a general question, because it depends on what kinds of
bugs and in which parts of the code you will report.  I could only
answer such question on a case by case basis.

TBH I don't really understand your 5 alternatives, because you are
alluding to symbols I cannot find in the sources: I see neither
read_literal_string nor dynamic-docstring.  Are those typos or am I
