"Local entity" in C++20 is not the same thing as "local variable" in
C++17. They serve kind of similar purposes, but they're not the same

The term "local entity" in C++20 exists almost exclusively for use by
lambda capture logic, so as to allow lambdas to capture names that
specify structured bindings. How local entities get captured doesn't
change how static block variables get captured.
