Completely avoiding the question about D, all it says in that 
section is

"The strings don't escape draw_text, so they are cleaned up when 
the function exits.

In fact, the first two calls won't result in any allocations at 
all. These two strings are small, V will use a preallocated 
buffer for them."

That's a toy example. It would be hard to mess that up in C, and 
I'd expect it to be easy for the compiler to handle it.
