Steven Schveighoffer:mark strongly pure functions as pure, mark functions that access global data as something else (global?) and weakly pure functions just aren't marked.
This looks better than the current design. When porting code to D from other languages you need to add something like a globals attribute, but this seems an acceptable price to pay. Time ago I have suggested an attribute to regulate the usage of global (outer) names inside functions; the weak purity seems an "extreme" version of it. Bye, bearophile
