Interesting, please elaborate.

The last time I tried, Quartus silently ignored my attempts to
initialize an inferred RAM directly from VHDL (assignment from an impure
function that reads a data file) and the only way I found to change the
contents of a memory block in the final bitstream was via the GUI, which
isn't that useful for a makefile.
