This sounds sort of tantalising, especially the F8 timeframe. What are
the details ? Is there e.g. an online core dump mapping service to be
made available ? And if so, a standardized desktop UI crash reporter to
submit the core somewhere on crash ?

Seeing as gnome apps intercept by default SEGV and launch bug-buddy
instead of creating a core dump and OOo does similar should we have a
pile of bugs to just remove this stuff and crash to core and let
something else take care of it.
