I've cced the crash-catcher mailing list. Probably the developers can
comment more about this idea, but in general I really - especially the
part -known bug& known workaround, which might be linked to a
wiki-like database of user problems and solutions.
If ABRT finds a duplicate it can ask bodhi if an update fixing this BZ
exists and if so, then it can provide a way to run pkgkit to install
