Somebody who is capable of making out what is wrong is probably capable
of setting a breakpoint at the function which handles internal compiler
errors or force it to core dump.

In most cases, internal compiler errors seem to be easily reproducible;
it's just a matter of repeating the same input.

Dumping core would probably just encourage people to post their uuencoded
gcc core files to the bugs mailing list. :)
