 FWIW I've been using -debug-info-kind=constructor locally for LibreOffice 
development, and I haven't noticed a single problem (and yes, it noticeably 
reduces file sizes and build time). Since one of LibreOffice's 
tongue-in-cheek mottos is "proudly breaking your toolchain since 1985", I'd 
be happy to run any tests with it if you'd be interested in testing the 
feature with yet another large C++ codebase.
