How much more useful would it be if ABRT had a mode where executables
that recently reported crashes are subsequently/temporarily run with
syscall tracing in the background, so that if they crash again, then
recent process syscall history can also be optionally included in an
ABRT report?  This would not be hard to do with e.g. systemtap.
