It would be useful if java.lang.Throwable printStackTrace() and fillInStackTrace()
used the extra information provided by SourceDebugExtension [NOTE 1] if that
information is available.

I'm investigating using SourceDebugExtension for compiling a non-java language,
Nice: http://nice.sf.net. So far the results are promising, in that jdb reports
files and line numbers as encoded in the SMAP my compiler generates. So far, so
However, if a stack trace is generated, I think the jvm should also try to use
the info in SourceDebugExtension for the default stratum if available, to report
the line numbers of the stack locations. I found that it does not. Is there a
plan to implement this in a future version of the JDK? Should I open a bug
report in the bug database about this?
