I haven't tried that kind of programs, but I think that any solution for
reviewing patches has to be tightly tied to bugzilla itself (and I
personally quite like the current solution, though I understand it's not
very handy for big changes with many diffs), as that seems an easy way
to me to attract users to jump in and contribute a patch.

Technically, bug-buddy is already capable of creating minidumps and push
them to a server, and this would be great indeed, but
AFAICT it requires a lot of coordination between us and distributions to
- a way for distributors to automatically push debug information to a
centralized server for every package/update.
- an unified way to get the version of a package, as distributors often
ship two or more updates for the same upstream version.

To be honest, I like more the way Ubuntu handles this, i.e. has its own
crash server and pushes upstream only the good/unique traces.
