So it's now modern practice to dump the principle of data hiding?

I'm sure that will surely advance the science of programming.

On this we can agree.

D has an ongoing, and ever-getting-stronger love affair with C. 
So for OO programmers, I'd argue there are far better languages 
available - ones that provide the tools to make OOP easier, 
rather than harder, and give programmers choice over their 
design, instead of forcing a design upon them.

A language that claims to support OOP using classes, but provides 
no language mechanism to the programmer so they can explicately 
hide members, but rather ***INSISTS*** that all class members be 
wide open to use by all other code in the module, is just a joke 
- IMO.

Better for D to stop making that claim, and remove classes from 
the language.
