Before we start, just know that I already implemented the functionality
in a modified version of Clang v12 which is used underneath another
source-to-source compiler that converts Python into C++ code. Given the
complexity of that scenario, the final executable is crash proof and
free from memory leaks. So my point is: this has been thoroughly tested
and it works perfectly fine.

What can be done is to add implicit:

1) parameters (i.e. marker):

void foo(marker &__y /* implicit*/, int a, int b, int c)

2) compound statement instances:

void foo(marker &__y /* implicit*/, int a, int b, int c)


     marker __z(__y); // implicit & used to stack trace and to destroy
nested objects

     for (int i = 0; i < 10; ++ i)


         marker __x(__z); // implicit & used to stack trace and to
destroy nested objects


     bar(__x, 1, 2, 3); // implicitly share the stack frame in
subsequent calls


3) class members:

struct A


     marker & __x;

     A(marker & __y) : __x(__y) {}


4) global singletons:

static marker & __x()


     static marker __y;

     return __y;


5) raw pointers overload:

int main()


     int * p = new int(9); // implicitly replaced with your favorite
smart pointer

     delete p; // no-op

     return 0;


Just with this framework, we can help improve C++ drastically.

I am planning to talk to Intel regarding their compiler as well this
week or next week to see if they can help us out. My implementation with
Clang v12 works great but can definitely use some speed boost.
