We could make /etc/rc.d/savecore (the script that runs crashinfo) also 
email root@ (or wherever the periodic output is set to go to) with a 
pointer to the output, and instuctions on what to do (either delete, or 
email it somewhere).  The output isn't sanitised so we'd have to be 
careful here - we can't just suggest send-pr.
