I wanted this as well, to enable some software we develop to display the 
call-stack at any given point (usually during failure, but also for 
tracking memory allocation). While libiberty allowed the decoding, being 
GPL and not LGPL meant we couldn't use it. I'm not complaining about the 
license or trying to start a flame-war here, but there are some situations 
where it's not feasible to use libiberty.
