           Summary: case statements always start new scope
           Product: D
           Version: 1.029
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Keywords: spec
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: DMD
        AssignedTo: bugzilla digitalmars.com
        ReportedBy: kamm-removethis incasoftware.de


Scope statements introduce a new scope even when not using ScopeBlockStatement,
as seen here:

switch(1) {
case 1:
  writefln("case 1");
  scope(exit) writefln("case 1 scope exit");
case 2:
  writefln("fallthrough to 2");
}

prints: 
case 1
case 1 scope exit
fallthrough to 2

But this behaviour is not described in the spec. Maybe add:
"Case statements start a scope that ends at the end of the enclosing scope or
before the next case or default statement that is inside the same scope level.

Example:
switch(i) {
  case 1: // implicit scope start 1
    ...
  // implicit scope end 1
  case 2: // implicit scope start 2
    while(true) {
    case 3: // implicit scope start 3 

    // implcit scope end 3
    }
  // implicit scope end 2
}
"
