I also thought about it. But why simply strip the test binaries? Once
the test was successful, the regression data are generated, and the
binary and object files are not necessary anymore. They could simply be
erased. If the files existence is necessary, they could be emptied (or
replaced by dummy versions). A 1k dummy file is a lot nicer than a 4M
test binary never used again.



PS: Regression testing works just fine after emptying files:

find bin/ -type f -name "*.o" -exec cp /dev/null "{}" ";"
find bin/ -type f -perm +100 -exec cp /dev/null "{}" ";"
