Who designed the generics btw? I’m not 100% certain that it’s even safe to change their design like this so it would be nice to hear from them. Inline specializations rely on tprocdef and if I change everything to work on symbols we could break generic procedure overloads.

One thing I can do to remove my dummy tgenericparamdef class is to keep a separate list of const syms in tspecializationcontext.
