Yes it's in our plan. Bill Roberts also requested testing leaking_addresses.pl
and Philip has scheduled it to next quarter.

That'd be great! In general we are mainly responsible for catching
regressions. Due to limit of time and expertise, we leave the analyze
and bug fixing works to the first bad commit's authors and anyone who
are interested in looking into a class of problems. For example, we'll
CC some smatch and coccinelle regressions (possibly false positive) to
Dan and Julia.

Thanks,
