Introduced with https://github.com/dlang/dmd/pull/5909.

The above code can be compiled by using `return scope` instead, but in that
case the `return scope` is still reduced to `return` in the mangling.

Maybe it's a problem with struct methods being implicity ref for the this
parameter?
Hopefully we can consistently use `return` as abbreviation for `return scope`,
if it depends on the context, then it might not be worth the confusion.
