          Issue ID: 22154
           Summary: Pure functions should be able to use only the address
                    of a global
           Product: D
           Version: D2
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P1
         Component: dmd
          Assignee: nobody puremagic.com
          Reporter: andrei erdani.com

Consider:

__gshared int a;

pure int fun(int* x) {
    if (x == &a) return 1;
    return 42;
}

This does not compile. However, it does not depend on global modifiable state
because the address of a global is a runtime invariant.
