We could do that, but a more ideal world would be where our ABRT
system can give them as useful and reliable data as their usage of
breakpad on Windows and OS X does.  There are multiple components
here, the biggest of which is that we need to avoid requiring a
Bugzilla account for crash submissions, and we need to make it about
one click.   Once we have the data reliably, Mozilla could pull
crashes from our system into theirs, say a cron job which just does:
wget http://crashes.fedoraproject.org/package/mozilla/20091018.tar.gz

And Fedora really needs an equivalent UI to crash-stats.mozilla.com
but that's another topic.
