Well, I support separate debug info; I consider emitting everyting in
the .o file a non-starter. If that makes you go away, that is sade.
I consider emitting everything in a .o to be a non-starter too, more or
But I *also* consider trying to come up with magical heuristics that
arguably don't even work in the common case, to be a non-starter.
Maybe we should be exploring *why* everyone else use separated debug
info, and not heuristics, before claiming the heuristics are a good
