Description

23 days ago
There is a pending proposal for a mechanism to control how shared memory is initialized from constant data in a module (namely, not repeatedly).  This proposal is somewhat stalled but it is necessary and we'll need to implement it, when it makes some progress again.

According to Luke the CG settled on "Solution 2" from the spec above, so we can now try to implement that.
