I thought a little bit more about it and I'am even unsure how varout
should be handled for managed types. Should it be allowed at all?
- just overwriting a previous value will lead easily to memory leaks
- handling like var won't work either because it's perfectly valid to
pass an completly uninitialized memory location
Any thoughts?
