We have a crash handler in the works, which is much more useful than this. And memory leaks can simply be investigated simply by debugging. I don't see how this plugin could help here. Anyway, we disabled the crash recovery already, so most memory leaks should be gone.

If you don't know what people are using your software for, or how then you aren't communicating with them. You know once upon a time companies just talked with people to figure out what they wanted and what they were having difficulties with. Why not just take a few surveys a year?
Well, there are things that are hard to report via survey, e.g. rate of crashes or memory leaking in clangbackend
