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.
