While I understand that it would be difficult to change the debug level
options with binary distributions, I'm not sure whether I would like to
see these changes going in. PRISM2_NO_DEBUG was added to make it
possible to reduce the driver size considerably. In addition, the change
to the default debug categories (i.e., disable all) may make it more
difficult to understand reported issues. I would be more open to
disabling debug messages one-by-one if there is something specific that
can be agreed to cause more harm than benefit with extra output.
