that's a good point, and it looks like this already works in

core.pid file (if enabled with ulimit); so things like LibreOffice's
build system automatically running gdb to get a backtrace when a unit
test crashes work fine.
Yes, this already works great by default.
It would be very nice if the core dump went to coredumpctl instead of
the process's cwd, but this is just a matter of preference.
