Daniel Kahn Gillmor created an issue: https://gitlab.com/gnutls/gnutls/-/issues/1178

>From what i can tell, `GNUTLS_NO_EXPLICIT_INIT` actually disables the *implicit* call to `gnutls_global_init`, according to [the documentation of `gnutls_global_init`](https://gnutls.org/manual/gnutls.html#gnutls_005fglobal_005finit).

Can GnuTLS rename this to `GNUTLS_NO_IMPLICIT_INIT`?  (perhaps it would also be a good idea to check for, accept, and warn about anyone using the older `GNUTLS_NO_EXPLICIT_INIT` variable -- and at the next major release, drop it)
