Looking more closely at DIP 1000 doc - It appears to be saying
that the compiler will try to prove addresses taken of local
variable cannot be escaped. If the compiler can prove this, the
function will pass @safe even it the address of locals is taken.
If the compiler cannot prove it, the code will need to be
rewritten to pass @safe.
So no hard rules about taking the address of local variables or
not. Developers need to try it and see. Is this a reasonable
