Note that 'NDEBUG' isnt' a Google-ism, its a Standard C-ism.  It
disables the assert() macro, removing all assertions from your code.
This is generally good practice for production code, but just be
careful that you're not doing anything with assert() that has side
effects you depend on, like

    assert (++i < 100);

or something silly like that.  Never been bit by this myself, but I've
seen it bite others...
