Sorry I guess I misquoted.

Feel free to warn (for now) but don't append it anyway, otherwise the
eclass is simply not usable in some contexts. Unfortunately I've seen
too many packages out there where --disable-debug still enables it
(broken AC_ARG_ENABLE), or where --disable-debug stops _every_ symbol
emission (which is almost never what you want), or where --enable-debug
stops the whole optimisation (which again is almost never what you
want)....
