The enhanced IFTI in 2.0 is exciting news to me.  And Walter seems to 
have settled on a decision of "won't backport". 

Template constraints look to be quite a nice feature too.

__traits looks pretty convenient for some things as well, even if they 
look completely hackish.

I see basically zero inclination from Walter these days to make major 
changes to the const system, despite herculean efforts by some on the NG 
to convince him it needs changing.  So I think const is gonna stay 
pretty much the way it is, like it or not.  Walter doesn't want to have 
to do a major overhaul of Phobos again any more than Tango devs would 
like to do the same for Tango.
