Many good ideas... am just singling out this one, as you seem to 
be of a different opinion in this particular case... I on the 
contrary wish D would have taken this route as well, because of 
the ubiquitous 'auto' and 'implicit template instantiation' 
features... furthermore vector simd types could also benefit.
