I think Graham was hoping for more powerful 'constant' statement.

I know I'd like to be able to say things like

constant kA["help"][1] = "This is the help string"

or

constant N = 1
constant kA["help"][N] = "some string"
constant kA["help"][N+1] = "next string"

or indeed my old favourite

constant kManyLinesOfText = """
here's a version of the constant string
which spans multiple lines"""
