Try playing with it a little...

I understand the intent, it just didn't work well.  The option is still
there with a reasonable default.  If they want it, they can use it; if
they don't, they don't.  If they don't know that they probably want -g
if they have KGDB, they'll find out soon enough.  Simple.
