Sadly my experience is that usually writing the test is harder than
fixing the bug itself, i.e. this is not an EasyHack. At least I would
not volunteer to mentor such an EasyHack.

Sure, there are exceptions, like we nowadays have a pretty good
framework for filter tests, but that's not yet the majority.
