The introduction of ‘foo-dbgsym’ automatic generated packages makes me
quite sure those instructions are obsolete. But perhaps they are not?

Reading that reference again, I am not much wiser. It does not reference
‘foo-dbgsym’ packages so the reader doesn't know which instructions are
to be followed.

Could someone who understands *why* ‘foo-dbgsym’ is not sufficient,
please update the wiki page to be explicit about what is special to
Python and under what specific circumstances we still need ‘foo-dbg’
