If someone just wants to take a look, they can do just that.  No one
is forcing them to say "make foo.log DEBUG=1" and run the foo test
under a debugger.  This is an optional feature, as should be clear
from reading the original bug report and this discussion.

Not sure how is this related to the issue at hand.  Maybe you should
read the whole discussion.
