I see your point. I think the upshot of Mark's analysis is that it's not
meaningfully risky to do this change. The one caller that doesn't handle
it well is already pretty scrod when faced with any .zdebug_* sections. So
unless Mark objects, I think this is fine (I don't think it matters much
one way or the other to put it in #if USE_ZLIB).
