digitalmars.D.bugs - [Issue 18323] New: deprecate `void fun(this a)` (instead:

https://issues.dlang.org/show_bug.cgi?id=18323

          Issue ID: 18323
           Summary: deprecate `void fun(this a)` (instead: typeof(this)) ;
                     `var.init` (instead: typeof(var).init)
           Product: D
           Version: D2
          Hardware: x86
                OS: Mac OS X
            Status: NEW
          Severity: minor
          Priority: P1
         Component: dmd
          Assignee: nobody puremagic.com
          Reporter: timothee.cour2 gmail.com

we should deprecate `void fun(this a)` (instead: void fun(typeof(this)a)) ;  
likewise, we should deprecate `var.init` (instead: typeof(var).init)

more controversial: we may also want to deprecate `instance.static_methor();`

it's confusing and lax, and leads to behavior that confuses some users, see
