I’m not really convinced by the minidump approach, especially because of
the confidentiality implications. Furthermore the current code still has
non-free components and is not distributable. 

The approach I’ve been pondering for some time is instead to put the
debugging information on a public server, shared by WebDAV, so that it
is be possible to mount it with FUSE and let bug-buddy dump the trace
directly. The problem with this approach is that gdb currently reads the
whole debugging symbol information upon loading, just to compute a
