The byte array isn't "const" either, in exactly the same way (some
compilers might put it in ROM if so instructed, but that is true
for the CREATE version as well).

The string approach is sort of hackish, for example you need to
drop the length it leaves on the stack.  It can be convenient
for big chunks of byte data, but for something short I wouldn't
