Follow-up Comment #12, bug #36658 (project octave):

I feel it to be a very much misleading and dangerous to have global a=b having
no effect in certain cases. No matter if it is documented or not.

On the other hand, I cannot remember if any scripting language that has global
variables with initializers. This is probably comes from that, people perceive
initialization happening during compile time but not at running time.
However since scripting languages do not have "compile time", I would not
expect such a functionality at all.
So I think this possibility is more confusing than offering a challenges.
