It's not about saving disk space.  Remember that groff is an
interpreted language *without* a translation to an internal
representation.[*]  This means, for example, that a comment within a
loop with 1000 repeats gets parsed a thousand times, again and again.
Right.  And we visited this a couple of years ago, with various

Thanks for  reminding us on this former discussion.
It really looks like we should use the unstripped version only in future releases.
Makes the build process easier.
