The features set of D is perfect. It makes D the mother of 
language IMHO.
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 
its purpose.

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 
language to rule them all

Let nobody move the motion of removing from D it is not to the 
advantage of D at all.
