You make a very good case for the choice overall but not the lack of 
warnings. Part of the issue (IMO) is that D is /more/ than just a 
systems language (side note, it sometimes seems it tries to be 
everything to everyone), hence the original complaint of "silent" or 
surprising errors cropping up in the context of e.g.


returning ulong. Especially in cases like this, compiler warnings would 
be helpful.
