Bug#508585: Please provide an easy and official way to get debug symbols for all arch

Package: general
Severity: normal


In case of bug on rare arch it is quite difficult for the maintener to get debug trace. 
A generic stuff like http://debug.debian.net/ will help to solve hard diagnose bug like the  #508443 and avoid to create -dbg package like in #508582:
apt-cache search dbg |grep "\-dbg" | wc -l
Therefore please find a way to generalize http://debug.debian.net/ and get dbg package compiled on the arch, and offer a deb-debug like deb-source deposit.
Using a deb-debug method will allow simple user to download the debug symbol without the need to contact the administrator. I even dream of a 
apt-get dbg-depend package that will download all the debug symbols, including library linked against my binary.

Keep in mind that maintener time and user time are precious, and a quick backstack is often an invaluable information.
