A 20-page bikeshedding bonanza! Atypical D forums...and a pity 
that the priorities of core D devs is diverted to this spittle of 
a forum post when D has much bigger fish to fry.

become fluent Dub+SDLang in less than 1 minute for the first 
time. Pick one for your project and move on, both are supported.
