I thought the gnome bugzilla had a script or something to do this on
bugzilla attachments, but I don't see mention of it with some casual

As an aside, for the last two points, for the fedora builds all app
crashes go through "abrt" and it does a lot of the backtrace generation,
backtrace duplication, auto-install debug packages etc, so most of the
above isn't an issue for our specific Linux distro builds, though that's
not 100% helpful for the other OSes and "vanilla" packages. But maybe
abrt is worth a look at to pull some goodies from.
