I don't know for Mac, but the windows crash reports don't contain
sensitive information: OS version, VLC version, exception type,
content of the registers at the time of crash, and a stacktrace with
the list of DLLs corresponding to code adresses. The only private
information would be in a DLL path, but I can modify the code to send
only the DLL name, not the full path.
