Wow! Great!

Could fpc devel team provide application with source code which could 
translate addresses from bare bone stacktrace generated from stripped 
executable into full stacktrace with unit/line info using bare bone 
stacktrace file and executable with debug info included ?

Would be perfect situation to tidy join bare bone stacktrace and debug 
info to avoid combining stacktrace with incorrect debug executable.Maybe 
some magic number in stacktrace and debug info ?
