hm. i missed this part (about dead code). compiler doesn't do "dead 
nested function removal" before semantic analysis, afair, and attribute 
inference is in semantic stage.

yet you can cheat compiler by turning `impure_function()` to template. 
attribute inference on templates are done when template is instantiated, 
and `impure_function()` is never instantiated.
