You can't do that however without either compiling your own runtime or
attaching a debugger and setting it from there before main() is called.

While you can change the variable (as it is a global extern (C), your change
has no effect because all user code is run only after the variable has been

This PR changes the behavior so that changes to that variable done from a
module c'tor will cause your main() to be called without the exception trap:
