I'm validating Option 2 at the moment. It works if the plugins force the
FastStrings before returning to the host compiler. However, robustness
would require that each of the plugin's passes also call
reinitializeGlobals, since some FastStrings may have been allocated between
the installation of the plugin and its passes.
