[R-pkg-devel] Reducing installed package size with --strip-debug

Based on Dirk's blog post  about stripping debug information from the
shared object of my package `s2` I reduced the shared object file size
from 7 to 0.7 MB and get rid of a NOTE about the installed package size
(on my local Linux machine).
Dirk suggests that one could conditionally do this in the Makevars file
if the strip tool is available (typically the case on Linux). Does
anybody know what CRAN's take is on this?
