I don’t think that’s a huge problem though. When we emit a diagnostic about an uninitialized value or use, we could also emit a series of ‘inlined from here’ notes.

That sounds unfortunate. Why is debug info with transparent functions any more of an issue than debug info for stuff inlined by the optimizer passes? I’m assuming we emit debug info for the latter.

Arguably, public partial inits only make sense for @_fixed_layout structs anyway :-)
