Similarly, what I'd like is to grab a stacktrace, which is basically
just addresses,
then later match that up with, for example, pdb files, to get function
names etc.

When I push as task onto an async queue, I'd like to capture the
stacktrace of the code doing the push,
and include that with the task in the queue.
So when the thread that performs the task throws or crashes, I can log
"who" pushed that task.
Then, back at work, decode that log and say "here, it's your fault".

But the capture needs to be fast and small. Thus just addresses.
