Say you have your production system running for a while and now you want to run redbug because you found a problem. If it was not contained in your release you have to manually add it somehow.

Although funnily enough, I would've thought that redbug was the
exception to the rule, as eper has (at least) support for shipping
modules to a remote machine when using prf:start/3 - does this not
work with redbug also? Anyway, it's a valid point for adding many
other applications nonetheless.
