 think the first case is worth it (it is a 5 minute hack), but i am not
 convinced at all about the second.

 Marek today pointed to csc doing parameter name reduction when
 /optimize is passed.

+What is parameter name reduction?
+Anyway, the biggest issue is the debug data. It's nice to have around
+and we compile it in by default, but it's so bloated that we may
+consider disabling it if it's size is not reduced. It doesn't help
+that it was embedded inside the binary instead of keeping it separate,
+so it can't even be distributed separately.
