So, it would appear that the limit would be uneval'd
strings, potentially taken from the user or a file. I
suspect that even if you can't eval strings, this is
probably one of the reasons why the intern() function
exists. You can grab a string from a non constant
external source, and attempt to give it identity, based
on previously existing known string identities. Very
This isn't something c or c++ can do for you, either.
