But you don't need any kind of minidebuginfo for that first step,
you can make it even faster by just uploading the backtrace + build-ids
and on the server side the rest of transforming that to a low-quality
backtrace can be handled automatically, without
further user intervention, in case the user didn't go through to uploading
the high quality thing from retrace server.
