Fedora strips everything to a separate debuginfo file in an automated
way.  There might be an exception for one library, but last time I asked
about this, I was told that exceptions are a pain and could we please do
something else.  Also, the granularity of debuginfo packages is quite

This is one reason we ended up using sdt.h probes in preference to a
special unwind hook function for the C++ "next-over-throw" work.

If you can make it so this can work without debuginfo somehow, that
would be much better for users.  I think the sdt.h approach is quite
awesome; though it is ELF-specific (still -- better to do excellently on
some platforms if possible) and maybe hard to port to Ada.
