I've had some experience on both sides of this... so, I think I 
can say with some certainty that debugging symbols make 
reverse-engineering MUCH easier (many hunts to find the relevant 
code can be reduced to a keyword search), so I think it's a valid 

That D leaks identifiers and other bits from the source code is a 
real issue preventing some real-world use cases. E.g., there 
might be legal obligations in place where leaking source code 
identifiers could be considered a breach of NDA etc. In one case, 
we needed to write an RTTI patcher for C++ (MSVC) after 
updating/reconfiguring the build toolchain, as the compiler would 
otherwise place the class names of some classes in the binary.
