This is your opinion. I rarely need the full backtrace in a bug
because it you can get one its generally something thats easily
reproduced and I can just run it in gdb myself. When you need it is when
something weird is happening and you have to rely on the bugreport only.
This is sometimes doable even without debug info, I even wrote a blog
post about this:
But, having the full symbol names for all libraries and apps in all
backtraces I'll ever see in the future would help me immensely. Even if
its "just an unwinder".
But for that you really don't need the symtabs stored in the binaries/shared
libraries, you can just have the backtrace without symbols printed + print
relevant build-ids at the beginning, a script at any time can reconstruct
that into not just the symbol names, but also lineinfo. And the build-ids
will help even if you want to look at further details (.debug_info, source
