I do think this is a bad idea.  The debugging code has mainly proved of use
for the samba daemons; I imagine that failures of most other parts of the
code should be sufficiently reproducible that there's no need to have
debug-enabled binaries on-hand -- or at least, not to the point of
justifying 180MB more space used in the archive.

Steve Langasek                   Give me a lever long enough and a Free OS
Debian Developer                   to set it on, and I can move the world.
