I don't think that's too good, since you might want to use a in both kinds
of expressions:

a = a * b; // aliased
a = x * y; // not aliased

Considering it's not standard C++, I don't think there's a way.

    a .noalias= x * y;

would be nice, or possibly

    a /noalias = x * y;

    a [noalias]= x * y;

Mmm, that last one's tasty...
