Yeah it really depends.  For debugging info, it’s definitely better to
have a “debug” output; if you instead had two different packages, that
would make debugging much less convenient (you’d have to first remove
the package-without-debugging-info, then install the
package-with-debugging-info, rebuild your stuff, etc.)  In other cases,
the choice between an additional output and a separate package is less
