Why do you think so? Can you give me an use case of

Extract of my email on python-dev:

  Use case: when a program crashs, the user reruns its application 
  with the fault handler enabled and tries to reproduce the crash.
  He/She can send the Python backtrace to the developer, or use
  it directly (if he/she understands it).

After the discussion on python-dev, I don't think that the fault handler
should be enabled by default, but only for a single run.
