Would it be acceptable to do this through a constant string in the mbbo.DOL link instead of by setting VAL?

I can see this could be made to work if there were a new kind of constant link that can support non-numeric constants, including arrays, since as Ben suggests a PV link doesn't actually parse the string until iocInit() time.

This actually happens to be an area I've been working on in the last couple of weeks, and I suspect this ability might fall out of my work, so I'll see if I can implement something like it. I'm guessing it may need changes to the record type code, but that's not certain right now.
