That can, however, look at a build log and see that a crash report was generated for them, including a shell script that can be provided in a bug report that reruns the compiler with the correct arguments to reproduce the crash.

If they don't know how to run a compiler, how can they possibly know 
know to program anything? Programming is much more complicated and 
involved than simply running a compiler. And you are saying there are 
millions of them?
