          Issue ID: 17763
           Summary: [scope][DIP1000] Error: "cannot take address of scope
                    local" while passing a slice to a scope parameter
           Product: D
           Version: D2
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P1
         Component: dmd

The problem is that the compiler disallows explicitly slicing a static array
and passing the slice to a scope parameter, while if you rely on the implicit
slicing it works without a problem. To reproduce:

$ cat > scope_bug.d << DBUG
struct Context { char[] str; }
void use(scope Context[] c) { }
void main()
    char[1] s = ' ';
    Context[1] c;
    c[0].str = s;      // <- If this line is commented, it all works.
    c[0] = Context(s); // <- this has the same effect as above.
    use(c);            // OK - this compiles.
    use(c[]);          // NG - doesn't compile, though should be
                       // equivalent to the statement above.
