Its an idea, yes.

The original use case was for dealing with traces from releases.
- build your release (with ability to log traces to a file) with debug line
- take a copy
- strip the release / ship it
Now if anyone got an error in the release, they could send the logfile, 
and you could use the addresses, to get full source info.

But it then also became useful, because the build in trace dump would 
sometimes stop resolving (if it encountered just ONE address that did 
not resolve).
So for that, the current exe is an option.

Important is, that the exe was not rebuild since the trace was done. => 
New build => new address to line mapping (at least potentially).

You can make a feature request. But it will be a while before I can even 
look at it.
