Bound to cause bad practices without nothing to tell why it works 
how it works. How do I know when I'm supposed to add `scope`? Or 
how to react when the compiler complains about escaping 
references? I have some basic image in my head formed from your 
DIP paper, but I read somewhere that it's outdated.

Could be worth a try even without docs, but in the long run we 
definitely need some explaining.
