digitalmars.D - nogcclass? (Way to solve bugs regarding destroy)

ATM the destroy function can't be called in a  nogc context, 
severely handicap the use of the  nogc attribute. Can we add a 
 nogcclass attribute for classes or at the very least have  nogc 
attribute apply stricter rules when applying to an entire class?
Rules such as checking to see if every member variable and 
function is  nogc recursively until the base class that it's 
inherited from.

That's known: https://issues.dlang.org/show_bug.cgi?id=17297. It cant be solved easily. Even the experiemental allocator `dispose()` function cant be nogc.
