   It has a fairly significant impact on size, so we intentionally
don't include debug in our release builds.

   Create a build.properties file in the same directory as the build.xml
(top level of dist), with the one line "debug=on" in it.  That way your
builds will always have debug info.

   This approach avoids issues with forgetting to turn off debug when
checking in changes to build.xml, or forgetting to change build.xml
before doing a release etc.
