Hm, perhaps you should instead file a bug against any package (other than
libc6) which uses /usr/lib/debug for real unstripped libraries. Shouldn't
everyone use detached debugging symbols now, or is there really enough
utility in building a separate debugging version libraries to warrant the
additional user complexity of using them?
