While 1000 bugs per day would be nice for my bugzilla points (most of
the bugs should be duplicates for crashers), there's no way for us to
manually deal with this number of bugs.

Do we have an estimation of the amount of work required for this? Even
without adding the debug information, it will be helpful to reduce the
number of bugs...
