It just means `auto`. Probably it shouldn't be allowed at all, 
but D's parser is sometimes overly-permissive and will accept 
things like this even when they don't really make sense.

For example, you can also declare a `@nogc` variable:

@nogc x = new Object;

The `@nogc` attribute doesn't do anything here, but the compiler 
allows it anyway.
