Yes docs are sparse for now. It is (or will be) as powerful as 
C++/D in this regard.

They will be added, don't worry. In fact, they can already be 
implemented in a pure library form. I wanted to prevent 
programmers from using them (as "unsigned" is *not* the same as 
"natural" and is bug prone), so leaving them out seemed a good 
means to accomplish that. ;-)

As I said, its priority is low.
