I realize this is probably "taking it too far", but since we're
discussing possiblities...

At we have a plugin (ZEF) which allows users (with
zero-effort) to give feedback to the developers. It basically adds a
button with a dropdown (alla the running man) that, when clicked,
packages and sends a post to a URL (in particular, we use it to send
anonymous messages the sourceforge forums). The dropdown list contains
all the plugins that use the ZEF's extension point.

Anyway, if this sort of functionality were provided, it would be really
cool if we could tie into the talkback feature via an extension point to
allow users of our plugin to get the crash information in their forums.
(if they so desired).
