(I'm assuming this was RE Ojan's quote, "All the bugs Chrome or Firefox
have received that I've seen have been around authors trying to get the
legacy behavior on flexboxes and having it not work in Firefox.")

I can provide some examples -- the bugs that've been filed against
Firefox for this (by reporters that were expecting the Chrome/legacy
behavior) are listed in the "Duplicates" field here:
  https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=958714

See also the % margin around flex items in this "flexbox fridays" demo
from earlier this month (which was promoting flexbox usage, and
accidentally tripped over this compat issue):

  demo:      http://codepen.io/team/lincolnloop/pen/dPRmQX
(The vertical margins between the letters are broken in browsers that
are spec-compliant on this point, per my comment on that blog post.)

I'm not sure yet how I feel about this proposal, so I won't debate the
merits of either option right now.  Just answering Greg's
request-for-bugs at the moment.
