It's probably a good idea for dragonfly to try and get backtraces from kernel
panics from as many joe-e.-adoppters as possible - new project, many
experiments, not much of real world deployment yet, etc, etc.
However, do we really need this on FreeBSD? Is the project in that bad a shape
and/or do developers have so few time to spare these days for reproducing
crashes now? How many mails per day about kernel panics where people have no
clue about how to get a stack trace are coming in on the -current mailing
list daily? I don't see that many. Better invest the time and some additional
disk-space into (running) more regression testing tools.
