Would that solve the problem, not the symptom?

In most cases, yes. But it's of little use to anyone who has to use the old packages. ISPs aren't well-known for having the absolute latest version of everything, and improved documentation can't help if you can't tell where an error is coming from.

The database isn't meant to be the final solution to the debugging question. By all means, when a solution is found, send in the patches for the benefit of future generations. But I think that this can serve a useful purpose for those looking for a quick solution to what might be a simple problem.
