That is a very good point, I had never considered the 
consequences of
semantics stabilization on tooling. It strenghtens (along with 
my opinion that D is fine as it is and that no new feature should 
added before at least two years, while fixing the implementation 
get the focus. It doesn't mean we can't add anything new, better 
integration or memory management semantics would be fine, as long 
as it
is an already begun project.

There's little point in having more features if what's already 
there is
half broken and not well-defined.
