At first look, this may sound nice, but note that with this approach
there can be only _one_ core per programm - and that in a multi user
envirement. So if two people develop programm foo - both at different
points, but both dump core, one might not be able too.

Thus with your change you would have to change the naming scheme too.
But then you may not be able to know which program actually dumped
core either - just think about different versions of one program

Just some thoughts...
