Hey I have not seen these FLAGS thing before. Are these new?

Anyway. Please NO!!! for one you need to put a big fat comment
over at flags definitions. And two what happens when one adds
a new flag. Is it reset or not reset?

I'd rather you define a flags mask for those that need to be
preserved, at header, plus a comment that any needed-to-be-preserved
cross init flags, must be added to the mask.

Never, ever, hide such crap so deep in the code.
