Maybe Uz can comment on whether such a "compile-time indirection" feature
would be possible to implement, I too have hoped that it would be possible
at times. It seems to be possible in theory, but maybe I'm not seeing all
the repercussions.

The use case would be scenarios like that, where you know a certain value
is a constant, but you have no easy control over the structure of the data
(binary files being a prime example).
