If only recovering core dumps was reliable these days! It has 
become fashion to misconfigure systems to forward core dumps to 
systemd-journald where they are promptly discarded because the 
daemon considers the dumps to be too large for hiding them in the 
binary syslog.

Apart from that, a crash handler that somehow logs or displays a 
backtrace is preferable when a crash happened on a user machine. 
Depending on the nature of the application, a core dump might 
contain sensitive information that cannot be legally shared with 
the developer (e.g. an in-memory copy of customer addresses).
