Do you really want a language that the source code isn't readable or browsable 
outside of an IDE?

Like the switch from command line to GUI, perhaps there are some that are ready 
to switch from text files to some visually graphy thingy for source code. But D 
ain't such a language. I don't know what such a language would look like. I've 
never thought much about it before, though I heard there was a toy language for 
kids that you "programmed" by moving boxes around on the screen.
