For `static` (internal linkage) variables the compiler knows all references to the variable, so it can remove the indirection and see that it is const (if it is).

Not yet firm with constexpr myself, so curious to learn what would one gain from using `static constexpr char[]` here? What exactly would be buildtime evaluated?
I think I have seen constexpr already in KDevelop code, so if that is a better version, would be interested to improve all similar places.
