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.
Also pretty relevant (and
implemented by MS & Apple) is whether the crash
has potential security implications. Doing it "well" is somewhat involved,
but a rough estimate shouldn't be that difficult, look at the backtrace
and do a little-lots of heuristics.
We may be doing some work in this area soon btw. :)
