Some interesting observations he made:
1. rigor is not wanted when prototyping
D recognizes this in that you can ignore @safe programming and pretty much all
of the annotations when writing quick & dirty prototypes.
2. syntax matters
This has always been a focus with D, in that the syntax is meant to be easy and
3. Incrementalism matters
This is the focus of -betterC, where D can be incrementally adopted by existing
programs, rather than all-or-nothing.
