There just aren't as many people thinking that abusing operator 
overloading is a neat trick these days.

I have seen one person using iostream style << in D, which is kind of 
scary. May as well just use opCall instead if you need one item printed 
per function call, like Tango did. (And there *are* good reasons for that 
-- it reduces overhead both at compile time and runtime.)
