There is very little D2 code around, so little changes as this one are possible still. As alternative see also this enhancement request, partially coming from a post of mine in D.learn:
(If you refuse this fallback idea too, then it's better to close this bug report. Keeping too much dead wood in Bugzilla will eventually cause small troubles.)
