I think it is too early for that as my project is not yet 
started, and it may not have any traction. I believe that if I 
can create solid documentation then it might make a difference 
but we will see.

Fortunately or not - I have limited time - so I won't be making 
changes to D other than very simple patches to switch off some 
things. I simply cannot afford to spend time on maintaining a 
different code base. My main focus will be to create 

I can probably do one thing - guarantee that the new language is 
a proper subset of D and that any code in laser-D is guaranteed 
to build with dmd, ldc, gdc.
