I see. However, making the constructor private still does not make the
compilation fail. The following code compiles fine on clang++
-std=c++1z ...

struct x {
    x() {}
    x(x const&) {}
    x& operator=(x const&) { return *this; }

    friend x f();

x f() { return x(); }

int main() {
    auto xx = f();
    return 0;

Is there any way to make that `auto xx = f()` in main fail at compile
time in C++1z?
