How so? At this point, static as a keyword pretty much never means that
something is compile-time specific. This is using static in pretty much the
same sense that static constructors do. A normal constructor goes with each
instance of a class or struct whereas a static one goes with the type. In
this case, a non-static unittest block would be compiled into each template
intsantiation, whereas a static one would be compiled once per template and
would not require that the template even be instantiated.
