I'm glad to see this. I liked the old Vision documents.

One quibble where he says:

"We’re mostly there—using the actor model eliminates a lot of 
problems that would otherwise naturally occur. We need to 
finalize shared and make everything @safe as well."

On the make everything @safe, you might want to make that 
clearer. Do you mean make everything in phobos @safe? Or 
something else?

Also, the comment about using the actor model...I don't think the 
documentation states that D is using the actor model...

In this thread [1], Ola makes the argument that std.concurrency 
is not actor-based because they are not independent. I have no 
idea if that's true or not...
