I agree. I actually was thinking of this earlier. Globals already have a
comma-separated list for additional properties (namely section and
alignment), but nothing easily extensible like function attributes. This
could be extended for dllexport/import.
This begs the question whether Globals should have proper attributes
like functions. Are there other things this might be beneficial for?
