It seems to me this is the current practice in most projects (ie. clearing out 
any debug messages) for builds that is not a debug build. Because most likes 
the speed of clean code, when published, but i guess an if statement won't do 
anything else that clobber the cpu prediction engine if the debug statements 
occur in critical sections.
