The documentation for std.typecons.scoped says to use typeof() to identify the

I know the arguments for keeping the actual type opaque. We've been over it
with std.regex.Captures and so forth. It would be really great to have a way to
name that type succinctly so you can use it in fields, pass it as a parameter
(by reference obviously), instantiate templates of it, explicitly name variable
types, that kind of thing, without having to use aliases everywhere.

Example of someone getting confused by how to use it without that sort of type
naming: https://forum.dlang.org/thread/tnwyxmraefedcbypugqp forum.dlang.org
