If this is judged to be extremely serious, then the
default value of the option I proposed could be flipped,
so that by default nothing (other than, say, the Emacs
version) is included.

I made the default behavior include everything, because
I thought that (1) that would be more acceptable, and
it is backward-compatible, and (2) it is presumably
most helpful for bug fixers, by providing more info.

But there's no problem changing the default to include
nothing user-oriented, or even nothing at all.  That's
a decision for Emacs to make.  What to _actually_ 
include by default should be decidable by an individual
