Wouldn't it be better to send crash report with unresolved backtrace and
MD5/SHA1 hash of libraries and do the matching of symbols on some
"symbol server"? Hash of library provides unique mapping of library to
its symbols, so -dbg packages would be necessary only on symbol server.

I guess not many people can afford downloading -deb packages (which are
often larger than application package) through their Internet connection
just to send crash report.
