Currently the backtrace parser only supports backtraces from gdb, but the
api is designed in such a way so that one could easily add a parser for
other kind of backtraces. There is a parser interface that has two backends,
one for gdb and a dummy one. If you try to edit the config file and specify
another debugger (that was also possible before), drkonqi will use the
dummy parser and provide a pre-defined rating.
