Rubbish.  Just because I'm a developer it doesn't mean I want unstable
software.  And that users don't need debugging features is wrong too.
Think bug reports:  Asking some user which reports a bug to flip some
config bit to enable debug logging usually works fine.  Asking them to
rebuild the app to compile in debug logging usually doesn't fly.
