He's building a game with Jai that compile in under a second. 
Small examples aren't indicative of how fast a compiler can 
compile when projects start getting larger. D isn't fast even 
with smaller examples if you include the wrong standard library

"New CTFE" has been a WIP for years. I did take a look at it a 
while back and I'm not surprised it's taking so long to 
implement. It might very well be a few more years before it gets 
completed, and I can see it being really unstable when it does 
eventually get to that point.
