Using phobos/dip1000.mak with entry aa[std.exception]=-dip1000 (to be changed
from -dip25 to -dip1000) and running (with current, git-cloned
dmd/druntime/phobos sources) in directory phobos:

make -f posix.mak std/exception.test

results in:
T=`mktemp -d /tmp/.dmd-run-test.XXXXXX` &&

std/exception.d(1238): Error: returning & i escapes a reference to local
variable i

std/exception.d used to compile successfully with -dip1000 switch until ~
2018-03-15, failing since.
1. This is  system code, allowed to escape whatever
2. There is no escape (commenting out slicep usages doesn't change the error

excerpt from std/exception.d:

 system unittest
    int i;
    int[]  slice = [0, 1, 2, 3, 4];
    int[5] arr   = [0, 1, 2, 3, 4];
    int*[]  slicep = [&i];               <= error line 1238
    int*[1] arrp   = [&i];
    assert( slicep[0].doesPointTo(i));   <= slicep usage
    assert(!slicep   .doesPointTo(i));   <= slicep usage

https://issues.dlang.org/show_bug.cgi?id=17784 is about the wording of this
same error msg.
Here I claim for this std/exception.d case, that it's a rejects-valid.
The comment in phobos/dip1000.mak after aa[std.exception] is outdated, will
point to this new bugzilla issue later, but was identifying this same issue.
