I would object to this; most users wouold be, IMHO, badly bitten by
having their core files mysteriously go away.

However, I do like the idea of eliminating the 'find' - perhaps if we
could come up with a set of uid's for which this should be done, or otherwise
rules to determine whose core dumps are put there, make them all owned by
their creator, mode 600, and do that, so that, for instance, getty, login,
sendmail, and named all dump core in the same place, but my vi doesn't.
