Regarding the top-level issue. Walter and I agree it's an important 
problem, and also that plugging holes as they start leaking (which is 
what we've been doing so far) is not going to work well in the long haul.

A redesign of template instantiation is necessary, and Walter needs to 
be fully involved in it. However, please give it time. Walter is 
currently working full time on catching C++ exceptions from D code, and 
as we all know the best way of getting many things done is to do one 
thing at a given time and do it fully. It should take him at least two 
weeks' time to get there.

This is a good time to collect cases known to be troublesome and to 
discuss high-level approaches.
