The second paragraph of 'Make D the default implementation 
language' lacks an example for those who are not familiar with 
it. How can D, compared to its contenders, make the code 
'automagically' callable from other languages? A reference to an 
existing library could do.

Regarding interop with C++, what are your thoughts on tools like 
Calypso? It supports most C++ features, including advanced stuff 
like template instantiation, and it seems to be under active 

I understand the main motivation behind the interpreter is fast 
iteration times. Is the idea to have an interpreter that can run 
entire applications?

Overall this was an interesting read. It's nice to see the 
efforts that are being made to make D @safe by default.
