It seems you (and others in the thread) are hoping for an automatic
backtrace on any crash - I don't think that's in the currently
discussed scope.

Even with this feature you'll have to walk them through 1) enabling
core file creation, or finding the abrt-maintained core, and 2)
running gdb or abrt on the core.  I'm not sure whether minidebuginfo
would make the situation actually simpler...
