Hmm, if consider it as a purely debugging feature, then yes. But if
consider it as a try to block some exploitation attempt, then no.
I'd appresiate the latter.

PaX/Grsecurity uses dump_stack() and do_group_exit(SIGKILL); If setup,
it kills all user's processes and locks the user for some time. I don't
really propose the latter, but some reaction (to at least slowdown a
blind bruteforce) might be useful.
