I think this might be going a little bit too far. In other posts on this
thread, is has been clearly shown that D isn't afraid run with a design
even though the implementation may be quite a ways into the future. As
you yourself said, "@safe needs more work".
The reason I'm saying this is because I don't think that a subset of D
which is good for tiny devices breaks the language itself. And it would
also showcase D's versatility. In other words, the community may
actually *gain* followers when people using other languages start to
think to themselves, "You know, I can't do that in my language, not even
in principle. That's pretty cool."
