Agreed, which is why I (as the author of the debug_symbols change) left
it that way.

FWIW, I believe that v3 of this patch is correct.  I did not follow the
reasoning for the objection.

Anyone building for themselves will (should) be doing debug builds. 
Anyone packaging RPMs will want debug_symbols enabled to generate
-debuginfo RPMs.  I presume .debs have a similar principle.
