This is the line I take. I do harp on D's arrays (which I love), but the 
real benefit comes from all of the little bits coming together to make 
the whole. As an example in miniature (and since people love specifics), 
static if, static foreach, tuples, and other little features all come 
together to make D's templates much more powerful and flexible than 
those of C++, or Java's crappy Generics.
