[webkit-dev] Enormous WebCore.lib on Windows (Release)

It recently came to my attention that the WebCore.lib built on Windows
(using either the Cairo back-end or the official CoreGraphics
back-end) weighs in at 1.2 GB for the release build, while the debug
build is a relatively svelte 370 MB.

Any idea why the Release builds are so enormous?  I would have
expected the additional symbols in the Debug build to cause them to be
much larger.
