Yes. Not until the Final RC builds is debugging switched off. (IIRC)

Rawhide kernels or using a stable kernel w/ Rawhide are not valid 
options. Rawhide is rawhide - development of Fedora, not for production 
use. Period. You can't jazz it up no matter how hard you try (Looking at 
you Jesse, Adam, and Bruno).

P.S. Can't use proprietary kernel modules (which some people have to 
use) with debugging kernels. The world isn't perfect and neither is Fedora.

I can see a big increase in boot time with my desktop setup when using a 
debugging kernel among other slow-downs. From 8 seconds (non-debug) at 
least double that. I use modern CPUs (quad core a minimum) with SSDs and 
fast GPUs. Speed is very important to me.
