I don't really want to here that from mobile or desktop developer. In embedded 
development, we sometimes don't have anything, not even a serial port to print 

But I don't put ad-hoc debug print statements in an ad-hoc place. In the rare 
case that the debug prints are complex and clean enough that I don't want to 
rewrite them everytime, I git-stash them away.

Or if they're potentially useful to somebody else, I surround them by #if 0 or 
equivalent. That is not exactly original. Also what BD, dvdnav, TTML, etc, 
plugins already do.
