[Bf-cycles] State of cycles baking

I wanted to kindly ask, if there is intent to improve cycles baking.
I am working with it for about half a year on a project - overcoming many
obstacles, building own builds with various patches from the tracker, to get
the job done. I even wrote an addon to facilitate the process.
I could have said - oh, it was a bad path to go, I'll do it in another
But I also like to help with blender development, so I stick with it. I
reported allready several of the bugs.
Some, I didn't report because they are kind of hard to catch and almost
mysterious- Baking simply often doesn't work on larger files, and crashes
very often, even when baking only on CPU and memory isn't by far full..
The thing is, I am a bit frustrated by seeing how great the renderer itself
goes forward, with bugs getting fixed relatively quickly, while baking bugs
hang there so long and lonely.
I know that Dalai Felinto, who developed cycles baking, is very busy with
another work on blender - multiview, and I understand that probably all
cycles developers have other things to do.
So, I just thougt - maybe there isn't common knowledge of the fact that
cycles baking is actually broken beyond point of usability(), and if I say
that, somebody just might try to look into this.
I'd be also curions about some bigger finished projects with cycles baking,
where something larger than the usual ""
