At first I replied just to Harald by mistake, sorry for that.

I also did a wrong analysis: I read the diff the other way around and I though 
"Oh, the Debian mode adds -g and -O2, which are things that we want".

But after finding that I read it the other way around I was puzzled until I 
thought this could be the solution:

* -O2 is removed to let dpkg-buildflags use whatever we decide in Debian 
should be used.

* -g is removed not because we don't want debugging symbols, but because we 
might not want them everywhere. A simple example could be WebKit, it's simply 
impossible to build it with -g on i386.

So that's my take on the issue :-/

Simulations are like miniskirts, they show a lot and hide the essentials.
