You can always revoke a pub uuid in the future. Perhaps a message
about that will encourage people to be more forthcoming with Smolt
profiles within such a tool. Obviously, including a smolt profile just
automates certain kinds of information (read: privacy) disclosures,
which is sometimes necessary in a bug report anyways. Unless that
information as cached elsewhere, revoking a public UUID essentially
makes people forget the details though.
