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.
