I don't think anyone argue that D shouldn't have anything
allowing this kind of things. That's a bad strawman.
It's like politician who are like, "you oppose mass surveillance
? Surely you want children to die !".
DIP25 and DIP1000 are addressing a real problem. They do it in a
clumsy way. Specifically, DIP25 do it in a way that actaully was
tried before with type qualifier ( inout ) and, long story short:
Now you can chose to wage an exhaustion war until everybody who
remains either agrees or don't care to fight anymore. That won't
make it a good idea, but it'll look like one.
