I'm interested. Although I'm not so much experienced in D it would be
great opportunity to stay in line with latest D 2.0 features.
I even have some mist ideas about architecture of the whole business .
(Keepin in mind that D should be a system and scripting language in one
- the first one in computer history)
Every module from std should have its coresponding imports within
samples (let say 2-5 at least). There should be comparable example in
Ruby/Python, C++. (I would exclude C# since D is near this M$ creature
but it's far from Windows and Dots slavery).
Comparison should be done int three dimensions.
- bytes of code
- memory usage
(yes, all this is like quasi shootout project).
(I would be nice for D to get all pole positions - however overall win
I would set-up a project on some git host (github) , automate all things
and publish results.
It will take some time and as you can see a risk of failure is rather
high. However I thought about contributing to D and you bring up a good
idea. I will stay away from the official repository to not break anything.
I'm starting work right now (with existing examples) but don't expect
too much from it.
If anyone has some a good argument for me to stop I'm listing.
