We plan to provide a share through the network, that you can mount to virtually
have all the debugging symbols for the archive, downloading them as needed.

With build ids, assuming we have enough disk space, we could ship debugging
symbols for more than one version at a time, and the right one would be picked.
With the debuglink method, this wouldn't be possible as the files would need to
be shipped in the same place.
