The primary thing that is holding me from using D more is the lack of
up-to-date x86_64 D2 compiler. We often work with large data sets, so
a virtual address space of 4GB is too small.

Other than that it seems very useful for many NLP tasks: nearly as
fast as C++, but much quicker to write.

Take care,
