I hope not started flamewar there.

It was really my decision, to not strip -debug flavour of a libustr.
I decided for including libustr-debug-1.0-1 & libustr-debug-dev, because
upstream author do rpm packages for these. CDBS is nice in its
simplicity I think.
-dbg package with extracted debugging symbols was already there.
I'm excluding -debug stuff now.
I must fix upstream Makefile to not build DBG flavour of lib, as it could
be wasting of resources and time.

Yes it was here already and cdbs created -dbg package.
-debug was another build flavour of ustr.
