an OOPS 100% tells you where and why the oops happened. Now, to determine
what the real reason for the oops was is quite complex, and in many cases
a crashdump doesnt help much. I would say the existance of a crashdump
hinders development more than the nonexistance of it ...

[btw., is that pile of symbolic oopses accessible somewhere?]
