It is kinda of ironic that FLOSS software, which prides itself
on community involvement in bug fixing, has also managed to
construct a -debuginfo distribution framework that makes it
more, not less, difficult to find backtraces for common flaws.

The only point being that citing "demand" statistics is
at least as much an indication of the rickety feebleness
of the -debuginfo distribution framework as it is an
indication of "No interest".
