A pie in the sky option might be to have minidebuginfo/debuginfo reside
in the same package as the binaries it belongs to but in separate files
which are marked in the rpm filelist. Then rpm could have a --nodebuginfo
similar to how it has --nodoc now. Not sure if that's either (1) something
the rpm team would go for or (2) something that could be available in a time
frame that the minidebuginfo authors would find acceptable.
