This is incorrect. You have to get used to the friction and rules 
the borrow checker introduces. Even if you get used to it, the 
learning curve is a bit higher. This is a trade off and an 
important one. Mean while in D, I can copy and paste a lot of C, 
C++ and even C# and Java code and it for the most part works with 
only minor tweaks here and there to adjust for the differences.
