libexo currently supports four different levels of debugging support, which can be setup using the configure flag `–enable-debug' (check the output of `configure –help'):
`full' This is the strongest option. Deprecation and some coding style checks are made and will cause the build to fail for any errors or warnings.
`yes' This is the default for Git snapshot builds. It adds all kinds of checks to the code, and is therefore likely to run slower. Use this for development of libexo and locating bugs in libexo.
`minimum' This is the default for release builds. This is the recommended behavior.
`no' Disables all sanity checks. Don't use this unless you know exactly what you are doing.
