Even at google, which has ungodly amounts of disk space, debug info
size is a serious concern.
This is more because of the network cost of propagating binaries
around than it is because they happen to take up some amount of local
I think it would be a huge mistake to assume because local disk is
cheap that debug info size doesn't matter.
If you ever end up having to propagate your binary to a datacenter
full of machines, or build on NFS, it matters a lot.
