FWIW, it has a man page:

I did some quick searches for 'libinput-debug-gui' on the Web but
didn't find any uses in the wild, so maybe we don't really lose
anything by disabling it?

Also, having multiple library variants is a bit messy (there was some
bug involving multiple versions of cairo used by a single app?), so I'd
prefer to eliminate the libinput / libinput-minimal distinction (maybe
with a separate libinput-debug-gui package if desired?).
