The reason why we start *talking* about it now is that we are quite sure
it's going to a problem for the KDE spin. As QA you know that we are
on the edge of current size limit with every release - we already did
a lot of compromises and with every release more and more stuff is 
pulled into the image :( So MiniDebugInfos aren't the only problem,
just a kick off to move on :)
