The pull request got merged back in september 2019 (https://github.com/dlang/dmd/pull/10249), but there have been no updates since then regarding this(or atleast I couldn't find them).

Is it 'battle tested' now? Have we implemented reach def analysis that prevented the borrow checker from detecting aliases in function arguments (read the very last part of dip1021)?

Hopefully the recent bug exposes in dip1000 don't affect it that, much, but I'm not very well informed on the matter. Can someone please provide an update?

Thank you in advance.

I've been working on ImportC, and before that was focused on reducing the bug count. I haven't forgotten about @live.
