in reply to Feature or Bug ?

Well, a "faulty implementation of my faulty algorithm" could happen to be a correct implementation of the "correct" algorithm, so in that case no. And, generally, if a program gives proper (i.e. desired) output on all input, then how can it be considered to have a bug? A program is a function mapping inputs to outputs, and if it does this "correctly", then it is correct, isn't it?
