What is the use case for this option? Surely if people want to see the none minified versions they can just look at rustdoc's source code.

Well, rustdoc messes with JS content by adding stuff in it. So it's not that simple to get a view of what's really generated unless you disable the minification.

Rustdoc also minifies any user-supplied themes as well as the search index. It also adds an extra line to storage.js with the resource suffix, before minifying that.

This is a debugging flag that @GuillaumeGomez uses personally, and the original PR for this was among a handful of no-comment stabilization PRs that he started at the same time, alongside threads for --themes and --resource-suffix.

It looks like you've added docs since the original PR, but i'm not aware of any tests in this repo for the minifier functionality. (How much is the minifier crate itself tested? That could offer a stand-in for testing the functionality of this feature, though not the flag.) I still think it would be good to have a run-make-fulldeps test that passes this flag to generate docs for a demo crate (probably an empty crate, but it could have anything), then makes sure that rustdoc.css and main.js have the same file contents as their original files in the repo.

Regardless, we should hold an FCP before merging this, since it's a feature stabilization.

Testing is complicated directly on rustdoc since everytime there is an update, we'll have to update the minification tests as well. I added tests (maybe not enough?) in the minifier crate directly. I'll let you judge if there are enough, and if not, I'll add even more! :D
