Yes.  This is a fine optimization.  I'd prefer not to block the current 
work for it.

No need, I've done it.  grep find all the uses in the debugging back 
ends for debugging information.  I've verified that the patches under 
consideration get all the places I had modified.  Doing it iff some 
form of -g is given is the right answer.  Additionally, avoid doing it 
when -P is given.  I don't think that is in the current version, but, 
that can be done later.
