Is any update for this ?

DIP1014 is fatal for implement safe ref count,  I don't trust a 
language call them self system language without safe ref count.

This is also a major block for implement GNU CPP std::string, cpp 
ABI compatible is  another import goal for D.

I just with I has the skill to work on this,  If nobody has no 
time to work on this. maybe some one can give a guide about how 
to implement this ?

like the step to do:

step 1:  example to add some build in id for opPostMove

step 2: which part code to modify to hook opPostMove with rvalue 
or lvalue move

step 3: how to glue it with DMD and LDC backend to generate asm 

Maybe there should be a new thread to talk about this.

The github user thewilsonator is like a hero to me, maybe when he 
get free time can take a look for this.
