Null,

your investments in enhancing Apport ist great. Now, a few weeks  
later, I've learned Apport can map coredumps to readable text  
already. One of the bugs I've filed shows how things can go wrong:

<https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/evince/+bug/260715>

Another one went a lot better:

<https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gnome-control-center/+bug/ 
269595>

Minutes after I've Apport-reported the later bug, stack traces came  
out of (apparently) nowhere and within a day, a fix was posted. Short  
of self-healing applications, this is about as good as one can imagine.
