IIRC the Release mode binaries are much smaller (tested that when I
had orocos_toolchain_ros checked out of svn instead of installed by
deb). Default setting seems to be Debug, so there's probably room for
improvement space-wise by switching. Or are there strong reasons for
having Debug as default right now?
