I believe that tests (read: regression tests) should ensure that the
implementation works on the given platform. I'd feel more confident if
the tests would extend the current "compile" check to a check which
tells me that the compiler actually got the initialization order
right. The latter is something I currently have to do manually.

I think you can read uninitialized values of "unsigned char"
type, because they're required to have a (legal) value for every
bit pattern of their representation.
