Apport for servers?

I like to install and enable apport on my servers, so that if a daemon
crashes, it leaves behind a crash file with the relevant state which I can
use for analysis and reporting the bug.

I think this functionality should continue to be disabled by default in
stable releases, but what do you think about including apport in the server
install so that 1) we get the benefits of crash reporting for pre-release
development, and 2) administrators can trivially enable it?
