How do you think it should be exposed? An initialization function
the compiler generates? Some kind of range of ranges? (so like a
representation of "4 bytes of zero, 5000 bytes uninitialized, 4
bytes of 4s". Though at that point a .tupleof may make more
sense, just gotta account for hidden fields too like the class
I'm thinking the function is probably the best though then
tweaking it becomes a compiler patch again. It would also want to
be guaranteed to be inlined probably.
I don't know though, it is kinda tricky to actually account for
those =void things.
