All of which are fairly important when working on bugs. gnome-abrt (or
some future Oops) is not ready to handle this, will not work outside
Fedora within the foreseeable future, and will not be included in
many/most distributions ever.

And not all bugs are crashes fortunately :-), the poppler or webkit version
used by evince and ephy is quite important for rendering bugs, for example.

And I cannot believe that we would refuse to make new releases of Totem,
Documents, and Dictionary(!) except in coordination with gnome-desktop.
Or that Ubuntu would enforce that coordination if we did.
