I'm more concerned about the stack address for wading through a raw stack dump
(to find function call arguments, etc). The return address does help confirm
that I'm on the right stack frame though, and also makes looking up a line
number slightly easier than having to look up a symbol address and then add
the offset (at least for non-module addresses).

As a random aside, the mismatch between Linux printing a hex offset and GDB
using decimal in disassembly is annoying...
