I guess it all depends on who your target audience is. If you really
want end-users (libre office users) to provide backtraces, you really
need to make the threshold for doing that as low as possible. I dont
think it is reasonable to have end-users compile source code for
themselves; especially on windows, where it requires msvc or cygwin to
do so.
