Someone found a way to generate audio output from the data that GCC
is handling. Using this to listen to the events leading up to an GNAT
failure, he thought it reminded him of insects.
So he asked a GNAT developer, “Is this the sound of a swarm
of gnats?” The developer told him, “No, that's the song of
the sick Ada.”
