Is this an rvalue reference problem?

This should work with *pre*-increment, but not post-increment. 
Post-increment works like this:

int y = 0;
foo(function(ref int val){
     int old = val;
     val += 1;
     return old;

`old` is just a local temporary, so it is not safe to return it 
by reference. Thus, it becomes an rvalue.
