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.
