I'll use that, thanks.

As a side note, I find the syntax quite unfortunate. It reads to me as 
if the static constructor will only be called if the default constructor 
is used (I know, this does not make sense as the static constructor will 
be called before main, and before any non-static constructor). Still, I 
wonder why not simply the Java syntax

static {
     // ...

was adopted.
