The features set of D is perfect. It makes D the mother of
What I think the community is should focus on is:
(1)My D app file size should be base on the feature uses. D
should be modularized just like the current java 13
(2)Each feature should be fully baked. I mean it should it up to
With more effort D could use all java, C#, Python, C++ in
addition to C libraries. This is huge for D. I think of D as one
