   I kinda don't see why this would be useful. The symbol
   table is not very useful for binaries built without -g,
   so why waste even the small disk space?

i disagree quite heavily.  binaries with *just* symbols in them are
actually quite useful if you are debugging.  you don't have *real*
debug info but you can see what functions are what and often that's
all you need to find / fix a bug.
