void main() {
    auto a = [10];
    foreach(i, x, a) {}
}


This common programming mistake produces this error message:

test.d(3): no identifier for declarator a

But it's better if dmd here prints a better error message, specific for
foreach(), to help programmers.

(I think this typing mistake is sometimes caused because inside a foreach a
comma sometimes looks quite similar to a semicolon.)
