Hi Joey and happy new year.

I'm wondering to close this bug, because we cannot find a correct way
to implement this: for core files, we need debug symbols, etc. The
people that generates a core, and want to report that to the
maintainer, can say so in the report and the maint can guide them (for
example, for some binaries there is no -dbg package) or we can add
some sort of documentation.

I'd like to year your thinkings about it.
