Currently, all structs and unions must have .init values that are 
computable at compile time, which means that adding a noreturn 
field would have to be a compile-time error, since it makes the 
.init value impossible to compute. You should probably specify in 
the section about `noreturn.init` than any aggregate with a 
noreturn field also has no .init value.
