It strikes me that you could add it to the crash report, since you're
intercepting fatal errors anyway.

Something like:

On Unix-like systems, you can enable core files with "ulimit -c unlimited."

This is useful because the first useful thing the user is going to do
(assuming emacs isn't totally bollixed) is to fire up another emacs to
make the bug report.  May as well have core files enabled for that
instance, too. :-)
