One other point is backwards compatibility: if there is anyone out there
depending on the current behavior, changing the behavior and then
removing the switch in the same release would be, er, discourteous.

I'd be happy to remove debug_pretty_print in a release or two after
8.4, if no one has squawked about the change...
