Hmm, but given the -d options it grew it seems that all we need to do
now is add an by default enabled "[X] Install debug info" and create a
far better trace for attachment in the bug report check box, and we're
done. Is it really going to clutter the UI and make it less easy? Maybe,
if we need to explain the user in detail what is going to happen. IMHO
it is not.
I believe that users experiencing bugs will be motivated to go through
the trouble and follow this. After all the more data they provide us, on
the machine where a crash happened, the sooner and better their bug
could get solved.
