I have wanted to remove a variable from scope before. I think it 
would be kinda cool if we could do something like __undefine(x), 
and subsequent uses of it would be an error. (It could also 
prohibit redeclaration of it if we wanted.)

D doesn't have that, but we can get reasonably close using other 
functions when we change param types (just forward it to the 
other overload) and functions and/or scopes for local variables:

void foo() {
    { int a; /* use a */ }
    // a is now gone, so you don't accidentally use it later in 
the function
