I don't think anyone argue that D shouldn't have anything 
allowing this kind of things. That's a bad strawman.

It's like politician who are like, "you oppose mass surveillance 
? Surely you want children to die !".

DIP25 and DIP1000 are addressing a real problem. They do it in a 
clumsy way. Specifically, DIP25 do it in a way that actaully was 
tried before with type qualifier ( inout ) and, long story short:

Now you can chose to wage an exhaustion war until everybody who 
remains either agrees or don't care to fight anymore. That won't 
make it a good idea, but it'll look like one.
