This is great IMHO. I was always interested in pure debug version of 
classlib to fix the bugs. Previously we had a half debug/half release 
mix which wasn't very convenient for debugging.

Is it integrated already? I think on windows in debug move the pdb files 
for classlib libraries should be copied to deploy directory. This is not 
done so far.

Hopefully it is possible to make deploy and temporary (for object files) 
directories different for debug/release and different platforms too. 
This will allow to have only one source copy on Linux when using the 
same home directory from different servers.
