If we're fixing issues with Apport, I think that's a bigger one.  I run
Karmic, but I don't update everyday.  Probably once a week or two.  And
basically if I get an Apport dialog I just close it as I know that my
backtrace will probably get rejected as something inevitably changed.

I do realized the impact of this and the amount of datacenter space it'd
take to keep all the binaries.  But it's a source of frustration for me
as it seems that Apport is only for people who update daily.
