The first DIP has just landed into the new queue. It is a proposal from
language authors and thus it bypasses usual nitpicking process and
proceeds straight to requesting community (your!) feedback.

Essentially, it is an attempt to solve reference lifetime problem by
extending implementation of `scope` keyword.

Proposal text: https://github.com/dlang/DIPs/blob/master/DIPs/DIP1000.md

Few notes:

- Please submit pull requests to adjust the markdown document if you
want to propose any improvements (mentioning @WalterBright and @andralex
for confirmation).
- The proposal refers to a number of other documents and it is
recommended to become familiar at least briefly with all of them.
- At this point the question I'd personally suggest to be evaluated is
"does this proposal enable enough useful designs?". A good check would
be to try taking some of your projects and see if having DIP1000
approved and implemented could improve them.

I see RefCountedSlice example, does this mean if I alias this say like:

struct FooBar;

struct Foo {
        FooBar* v;

        scope FooBar* get() { return v; }
        alias this get;

That it will operate correctly in the below case?

void func(scope FooBar*)

If this does work, this is a major addition that I've been waiting for, for my managed memory concept! https://github.com/rikkimax/alphaPhobos/blob/master/source/std/experimental/memory/managed.d
After this I'll only need proper ref counting in the language ;)
