Automated testing is important, perhaps you describe further
what's needed? I haven't worked with Rust test frameworks, but I
took a look at the description of the integration tests and unit
tests. It wasn't immediately obvious what can be done with the
Rust integration test framework that cannot be done with D's
An important concept described was testing a module as an
external caller. That would seem very be doable using D's
unittest framework. For example, one could create a set of tests
against Phobos, put them in a separate location (e.g. a separate
file), and arrange to have the unittests run as part of a CI
process run along with a build.
My look was very superficial, perhaps you could explain more.
