While the upgrade errors are mildly annoying (somebody *did* expirience them,
though), the automated coredump retracing is very, very useful.  If anybody
hits a segv in my C++ packages and go through the bug reporting process it's
obvious what the problem is almost every time.  But I guess we'll get there
as soon as we have debug packages in place.
