 Perhaps stack traces should be handled /very/ differently from bug
 reports?  Whenever I get a bug buddy popup, I remember that day where
 the quality feedback agent of Thunderbird fired for me; when I tried to
 check the state of my crash, I went to:
   And at some point I realized Mozilla folks were really dealing with
 *mass* crashing reports:
   Now this is what I call industrialized!  It presumably saves them a
 lot of time too, as the top 5 crashers represent 38% of the crash
   XP also has some well thought out process, which in my case popped a
 web site suggesting to update an Intel wifi driver to solve my BSOD
 (tm)... but XP isn't even shipping this driver!

 Perhaps the crash reports should be directed to a special part of
 launchpad, which wouldn't make each of them a bug?
