I would like to point out that pkg-gnome team already fixed the
gnome-dbg related Recommends in svn; for those with
gnome-desktop-environment installed if it was October 1st, it would
install all the debug enabled packages. Lots of people using GNOME
will see half a gigabyte results that will mean nothing once apt
development team do the change they're planning.
