ISTM the major argument in favor of letting this in now, namely better
debuginfo data, is essentially moot because it missed the mass rebuild.
The majority of packages are going to go out with old debuginfo.

Is there any chance of doing a new mass rebuild now?  That would
actually provide the intended benefit.  Plus, if we see any significant
number of failures, it would be sufficient evidence that the update
ought to be backed out; whereas if we don't, then it would assuage
peoples' entirely legitimate fears.

(I entirely agree with the concerns about this being a violation of
agreed-on process, btw, and would not be unhappy with a summary
rejection as an alternative.)
