No, I want people using Git master to build with debug symbols. I don't
want bug reports without symbols.

People don't know when they've built from Git and when they haven't? I
don't think this is a real problem.

People are credited in the commit message if they send a patch and I
know their name (that is, I have a real name to credit and not an
account name or alias).
