Awesome news!

One question, classes, in particular when combined with 
typesafe_variadic_functions seems to break safe, unless DIP25 
style return annotation is added.

"An implementation may construct the object or array instance on 
the stack. Therefore, it is an error to refer to that instance 
after the variadic function has returned"

Is this something which should be addressed by DIP25 or it is out 
of scope?

void main()
   auto x1 = fun(1);
   auto x2 = fun(2);

   import std.stdio;
   writeln(x1.a, x2.a);


class C
   int a;
   this(int a) { this.a = a; }

C fun(/* return */ C c...)
     return c;
