When we are considering Fedora Bugzilla bugreports then it is valid.
Custom downloaded binaries will not have this compressed-.symtab anyway.
Any rpm built by anyone with this feature will have this information in
it. Be it a locally rebuild fedora rpm such as a scratch build or a
totally custom rpm. Just like we build debuginfo rpms for such rpms.

The problem is .symtab is not sufficient information for a backtrace.
You keep saying this, but I and several others think that having it is a
sufficient for a great many things.
