I've found the exact opposite to be true.  Sure, two years ago, the
story was different.  But now GCC on our most-popular targets (GNU/Linux,
the BSDs) produces DWARF-2 by default and it works like a charm.

The space issue is still a big deal.  We'll probably be hearing all
sorts of things about that, now, especially with Apple jumping on the
DWARF2 bandwagon for OS X.  At least, tentatively.
