Hello Pascal and Lo?c,

thanks for discussing the additional ensures clauses of swap.
The main reason I added them is related to an incertitude I have about \valid and free.

Imagine I have a function foo with the following contract that is verified by WP.

    requires \valid(a);
    assigns \nothing;
    ensures \result == *a;
int foo(int* a)
    return *a;

But what if someone provides the following implementation

int foo(int* a)
    int tmp = *a;
    return tmp;

Wouldn?t this implementation also satisfy the contract BUT invalidating the pointer a?
Adding the clause ?ensures \valid(a);? would in my opinion exclude the second implementation.
