I cannot explain it, but it sounds inelegant.

I think we can use (get var 'standard-value) instead to detect
variables that were modified in early-init, and refrain from
reinitializing them the second time.

Clean, but unsafe, as important parts of startup has not yet

not work reliably at that point.
