Test case

From the prior conversation:
 Debugging issues:
    Stack allocated struct won't show values correctly (repro project attached)
    Supply metadata0.bin as commandline arg
    Place watch at lines 91 and 119, step and watch the values of `Frame f` and
`Packet p` as they are populated with data
    Notice that those stack structs do not appear to be changing, and show
rubbish values.
You can see the actual value in the hidden return value __HID1/__HID2 (you can see the symbol in the disassembly). dmd seems to ignore RVO when emitting the debug info. --
