Leaving the retracing at the user's end of things means that the user at 
least has a choice in the matter - I'm unlikely to submit any firefox 
crashes if I don't have an opportunity to look at what's in the 
backtrace. We can make symbols available for local tracing without 
forcing the user to download the entirity of the debuginfo, and that 
would seem a more reasonable approach.
