I think the restriction on 'out' parameters will be removed. I don't think
there's any reason for it.
A void pure function that doesn't have any 'out' parameters does seem to be
pretty useless (you can use it as a metaprogramming test that anything inside
it is pure, but that's about all I can think of).
