Packages from the PyQt5 stack (pyqt5, pyqt5chart, pyqt5webengine, qscintilla2)
have recently started to use PEP 384 limited ABI (the built files are named
*.abi3.so). However, when a debug interpreter is used for build, the build
system disables this feature and builds a normal *.cpython-38d-*.so file:


Because of this, I decided to still build -dbg versions for these packages.

Do you know how much the -dbg interpreter is compatible with *.abi3.so files?
I just checked, and apparently it can import them, but maybe there is some
benefit in keeping the normal debug versions too?
