Indeed, that doesn't sound like a sane solution to me.
I'd rather we just don't add yet another size overhead to every package. Our
packages keep growing and growing even without that. A few KiB here, a few
KiB there, in many packages, adding up to a few MiB, and we keep running
into size issues with our live image at every single release. Size matters!
