I too want a scope attribute e.g. for safe slicing of static arrays,
etc. I'm not sure if it's too late for scope by default though, perhaps.
I like postblit overloading on whether 'this' can be scope or not,
allowing efficient ref-counting.
scope T payload;
^ This is a nice way to help enforce the correctness of @safe wrapper types.
