adding nothing of value to it.
Yes, DRY is a good principle in software development, in general.
It doesn't really apply to a debate process, which doesn't have
the same constraints as a body of code or documentation.
More importantly, I've already gone on at length about why Rust
isn't directly comparable to D, and why this proposal in
particular is very different from Rust's memory model, and as
such needs a deeper analysis than "we'll do it like Rust".
So I think as a matter of courtesy, you should probably read the
arguments that have already been made on the subject before
lecturing other people about not repeating things.
Sorry, I realize I'm being hostile. But we've been debating this
for weeks, and we really don't need another surface level
back-and-forth like you're doing.
