cat > bug.d << CODE
struct Del
    void delegate() dg;

Del del(scope void delegate() dg)
    return Del(dg);
dmd -c bug

bug.d(8): Error: scope variable dg may not be returned

This broke at least https://github.com/DlangScience/dstats.

Before DIP1000 scope had 2 major use cases, prevent the compiler from
allocating closures on the GC heap and scope classes.
We must be careful to not just break existing code.
