Could the debug build test take the form of a standard non-private function then
instead of _isDebugAssertConfiguration()? If the test is limited to methods, 
introducing #if-style tests would be ugly.

How likely or easy is it for me to reframe the request for testing for debug to be as
simple as:

`if debugBuild() {...}`

with `debugBuild` vended by the standard library instead of as a build
configuration test?
