I don't think it makes a significant difference.
I think I remember seeing a comment about "debug" scaring some people, so it
should default to off.
If somebody encounters a bug, we might be able to learn something by having
the user run with debug printout enabled. I think I've seen that used a
couple of times, probably a long time ago, maybe with NTP classic.
These are my opinions. I hate spam.
