 If you start shipping base-debuginfo disable, then someone might want
to add the plugin-auto-debug-info package to CentOS:

http://yum.baseurl.org/gitweb?p=yum-utils.git;a=tree;f=plugins/auto-update-debuginfo;h=014fff021a1ae7db03aef595f42d5235c8049499;hb=ae4d9299e661004f620c3b2bc35feee807238965

...to take care of updates.
