Thank you @vzakhari, I think this is a good suggestion and I had something similar in mind, although I hadn't quite thought about using the varPtrPtr field quite yet, although, the additional use of it in this case is likely quite useful. I can look into converting this PR closer to this direction as it appears to be the more desired approach. I might end up having a couple of questions here and there on how to implement certain things, if that's alright! Still learning a lot about the infrastructure, in particular FIR/Flang level stuff (i.e. not too sure how to create the addr of addr's or expose the addresses of the members yet, but I am sure I'll work it out, although hints are always welcome),
