Hi Brecht,

Yes, when packed with 7Zip the libs get real small.
I'll commit the release libs only first and find a convenient solution for the debug libs then.
I guess having the debug libs packed in 7z files is the best solution so devs can unpack them when needed.
I think i'll add a batch script for unpacking.
