I put it in there intentionally.  The rationale was that the cost is
small, and the benefit -- being able to debug problems that show up in
the runtime without needing to rebuild the runtime -- is probably worth
the cost.  I think that rationale probably still holds, but I would have
no objections if someone wanted to remove that code.
