I think that it should be your decision, because you will have to sort 
out possible bugs. Personally I am fine with current default.

Don't know, I think this should be handled by GDB? AFAIK if exe was 
built without debug info, old debug info file won't be applied. The case 
you describe can happen only if user manually moves/copies exes without 
correct debug file, but even then probably GDB has some protections.
