A 20-page bikeshedding bonanza! Atypical D forums...and a pity
that the priorities of core D devs is diverted to this spittle of

JSON/SDLang both have zero friction; if you use Dub+JSON you can
become fluent Dub+SDLang in less than 1 minute for the first
time. Pick one for your project and move on, both are supported.
