      Description

      For some time now we have the accentuation for non-const reference parameters, i.e.:

      void test(int &i)
      {
        ++i;
      }
      
      int main()
      {
        int i = 42;
        test(i); // <-- i is displayed italic here
      } 

      It could be useful to extend this to non-const pointers too, i.e.

      void test(int *i)
      {
       ++(*i);
      }
      
      int main()
      {
       int i = 42;
       test(&i); // <-- i could be displayed italic here
      }

      The reason is, that you can easily spot potential variable changes from within the function at caller side.
