Comment 1 Richard W.M. Jones 2010-04-17 06:07:11 EDT
Debug is an internal-only "backdoor" into the appliance,
and so it's not designed for general use.  Also, we can
change the API of debug whenever we want.

So therefore, I don't think this is a bug.  The sort of
expert users who use debug will check the source code for
debug and understand how to use the parameters.
