Hi Ben,

Sadly, I am unable to quantify the coverage gain from this specific API
because it crashes too soon. Atm, it's a sort of chicken-egg problem:
Unless we fix the bugs, we cannot quantify coverage and vice versa.

It is hard for me to quantify the utility of making those code changes
that will permit fuzzing of this API.

I do not know how much change is required to make the API fuzzable but I
would just say that if it is non-trivial, then it is perhaps better to
not do it (since we lack data).
