No, that comment is wrong nowadays. In the past there were some bugs,  
e.g. ansistrings reducing the reference count of constant ansistrings  
and things like that. But rodata has been active and working fine for  
several months already on both PowerPC and Arm. I guess it can be  
activated in general, but I can't test major platforms like Windows  
so I won't do it.
