But the big one is @nogc and all its associated machinery. This 
is the killer, the biggest source of all the mess. And getting 
rid of that is not going to happen. Instead you'll see more and 
more stuff designed to support @nogc. Complaining about it is 
useless. So I personally don't complain, even though I disapprove 
of this course and consider it the only real strategic mistake in 
This is, of course, assuming that maximising the number of users 
is the strategic goal. OTOH, all these "f... off, don't whine, do 
it yourself" on the forum suggest that it's not actually such an 
important goal. As Adam Ruppe mentioned, more users, more 
problems. Which is fair enough, so indeed why whine? It just 
annoys people and provokes trolling.
