MariaDB for Windows without debug files
Hi! Can you also make a version of MariaDB for Windows in ".zip" format without debug ".PDB" files?
These debug files can take up to 33% in size of a installation.

pdb files are quite valueable, if one needs to analyze causes of possible crashes. So we'd rather keep the PDBs. What is much less valueable and was kept mainly for historical reasons, is mysqld-debug.exe and associated binaries. I now changed the way how packages are produced now, so in the future .zip won't be a mix of debug/release builds and include release builds only. This will reduce the size of zip package by approx. 50%. But PDBs will still be there.
