[arch-general] Why are Archlinux packages stripped of (debugging) symbols?

The reason I'd really like native packages to be built with split symbols
even if they aren't included in the package but available through some
other means... Is so that bug wranglers can more easily make sense of
traces/coredumpctl info output, where rebuilding the package would just be
a hassle and potentially result in different symbols, which defeats the
point. Maybe one day users could submit coredumps / backtraces to a
webservice that would reference the symbols, and "bucket" the traces to
help triage/identify unique crashes
