I meant to ask this myself and just forgot. I changed to this from
the more normal #define late in the game. My thinking is that const
variables are really just symbolic so static initialization should
still work, but I didn't know where to begin looking in the standard
to know if this were the case. If it's not we'll have to go back to
the #define, which is no big deal, but I should verify this ASAP.
