I am guessing that such an option would not make a lot of difference,
since the debug information will still have to be loaded and scanned.

But that is not to say that it will not work, just that I am doubtful.
If you would care to put together a patch to implement the idea I
would be happy to review it.


PS.  In the meantime, would it be OK if I closed this PR ?
