It would be useful to have more control over nvdaHelper debug builds. Currently, nvdaHelperDebug=1 sets the DEBUG flag, enables assertions, provides symbols and pdbs, and uses the debug CRT. However, there are times when one wants symbols but nothing else, particularly the debug CRT, which can obscure the cause of certain crashes. We should also determine for certain whether we actually need pdbs at all, since it seems that symbols are also exported in the dlls.

Implemented in d5706d3. the nvdaHelperDebug variable has been replaced by nvdaHelperDebugFlags, which is a comma separated list of keywords identifying which debugging options are required. Options are: symbols, assertions, debugCRT and noOptimize.
The symbols option still creates separate pdb files, there may be a way to disable this, but I feel that this is probably a different feature and does not affect the actual request of separating debugging options.
Milestone changed from near-term to 2011.2
