I think we're all talking about three different posts and getting them all
confused with each other:
- This one: http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.comp.lang.d.phobos/359 (Posted by
a Lars *Igesund*)
- A post elsewhere in this very thread that took the post above, replaced
all the words with the word "blah" and changed the last name to
- A post on the Tango Forums, that used to be here:
http://www.dsource.org/projects/tango/forums/topic/878 but is now gone. This
one was made by me reposting Walter's original post in this thread, at the
suggestion of Jason House and Walter (FWIW, we were just trying to be
helpful. Not that I'm taking it personally or anything).
