That sounds fine, the filtering/export is something we can add later.

I forgot to mention the most important thing, which is that right now
bug-buddy is limited in usefulness to the GNOME project because of the
-debuginfo split; concretely because stack traces in bugzilla are
essentially just lots of "??".  To pick a random one,
http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=565819

I'm reading the architecture page now, but I'm not seeing how ABRT
works in this respect.  Does ABRT have a "retracer" server component
like Apport/Breakpad, or does it somehow ensure -debuginfo gets
installed on the client?  Or does it rely on a modified gdb to
just-in-time fetch the data from an ABRT web service?  Something else?

Basically, if ABRT solves this problem we should just replace
bug-buddy without hesitation.  Should we consider this in an F11
update, or move to F12?
