The darkserver project ws initiated AFAIK by me as there is always a problem
how to reproduce an ABRT bugreport.

The darkserver usability problems were related to each other,
a chicken-and-egg problem:
 * It never really started working.  When I tried to use it once upon few
   months when I found time to process some ABRT bugreports which were not
   obvious enough darkserver failed and after contacting Kushal Das
   (darkserver author) he found some new software or data bug why it did not
   work that time.
 * There was never a tool making it convenient enough to reconstruct the
   tree of files based on their build-ids.
 * There was never enough users (was there any besides me?) that started using
   darkserver, because of the two problems above.

So I believe darkserver would be great but not in its current state of

Also I believe ABRT project already contains most of the infrastructure and
code required, I believe darkserver could be rather just few lines of code
added to the ABRT project - that is to interactively run the crashed program
with all matching versions of libraries - not just getting the non-interative
core file backtrace (which ABRT submits to Bugzilla).
