Snapshots and Pretests are primarily for testing, so including debug
info is essential.

In my experience, users complain (still in 2010) about the size of the
binary if it changes drastically between releases. So shipping without
debug info avoids such complaints at the expense that bugs are harder to
debug (but most users that would be willing to debug for you will be
using the snapshots or willing to build from source anyway).
