Colour me stupid, but I don't see why you can't have
rest of main.
OK, so it's *two* lines instead of one line, but is that a problem?
Failing that, what stops biginit being a single big ugly macro?
Again, at the point of use there would be two lines, not one.
I'm trying to think of anything I might want to include in the
body of a function that couldn't be in another function, and failing.
