I'm currently looking into using debhelper's dbgsym generation instead
of pkg-create-dbgsym. This requires some modifications, in particular:

  * Naming the dbgsym packages .ddeb instead of .deb (as LP cannot deal with 
.deb right now)
  * Reading /CurrentlyBuilding to determine whether or not build dbgsyms.

It would be nice if Launchpad builders could move away from
/CurrentlyBuilding and instead set ENABLE_DBGSYM=0 if debug symbols
should *not* be built; for the default, it can either not set it at all
or set ENABLE_DBGSYM=auto. This would then get rid of the
/CurrentlyBuilding parsing logic in dh_strip.
