Maybe you are both right ... and maybe I've written too much 
Python code in the past years and indeed, UFCS chains are a 
killer future of D: every list comprehension was turned into a 
nice UFCS chain.

Let's forget about that: the point is still taken by D, 
converting python code in D code is a pleasant experience!
