Another option would be to record the PID in the file name (changing
kern.corefile from %N.core to %N.%P.core for example).  This has the
added benefit of allowing for multiple cores if a buggy process dies
more often than an admin can collect the cores.  However, that benefit
is also a disadvantage as it has disk-filling potential.
