I think that's fine, but folks who have a lot more to say about this stuff=
seem to be hashing it out...

I actually think they should go with the set they're relevant to. It=20
doesn't matter as much with the large .tgz files. But as we move to syspkg=
(which will hopefully be soon), it'll be nice to update the debug files=20
when you update a binary-containing syspkg.
