On slide 19 of the OSCON slides there's this sample:

auto s = ["abc", "a", "xz"];
auto m = s.argmin!((x) => x.length);

People in the audience were quite pleasantly surprised to figure that 
although there's no mention of a type, that code is all the compiler 
needs to figure there's a lambda that takes a string and returns an 
unsigned integer etc.
