If that happens it should definitly be optional given the size of
debuginfo packages.  I can't think of a single situation where I'd
need the debuginfo for every package installed.  Installing them
on demand before running gdb is painful, but a lot less so than
sitting around twiddling thumbs waiting for yum to update several
gig of debuginfos.
