Perhaps @system code should just completely ignore privacy?
it is uncontrollable. imagine attribute inference: today, your function was inferred @system, and it sees everything. and tomorrow you fixed some other things, and now your function inferred as @safe. BOOM! without warning, it doesn't do what it does before (but still works!), and you didn't even touched it's code. this is the worst kind of breakage.
Could have a compiler option that changes the access errors into warnings?
each compiler option of this kind means "we failed our design task, brought you the feature that is so unusable that we even made it possible to turn it off globally. sorry, we giving up, now it is up to you to clean up the mess after us."
