I saw in the archives there were actually a couple of replies, though I
received none.  I guess the list breaks proper reply-to and cc and so
people weren't cc'ing me (I'm not on the list).

The two questions made it sound like noone read
where the whole plan is explained in detail.

The ID bits are the thing you have from the core file that makes it
possible (via the /usr/lib/debug/.build-id/ convention) to figure out which
binaries you need.

I really am not seeking your advice on the overall plan; please don't take
offense when I don't try to convince you it is worthwhile.  I am asking
this list about the rpm packaging convention, and I would really like some
more feedback about that.  (The answer about symlinks was very helpful.)
