saying arrays

Actually, it's trivial to implement evaluating-in-context initializers.  The
reason we never did this is because some in the group felt that literals should
be literals; the source code would contain a pointer to an object (the literal)
that was constructed at parse-time.  Others in the group felt that dynamic
initialization of slots would be convenient.  The purists won.
