The official, formal way to suggest a language change is to write 
a D Improvement Proposal, or "DIP" [1]: a document that describes 
the proposed change along with the rationale behind it. Every 
major change to the D language has to go through this process, 
even changes made by Walter Bright, the creator of D.

Writing a DIP is a lot of work, though, so it's a good idea to 
discuss your suggestions with other members of the D community on 
the forums first. There are a lot of smart people here with ideas 
for how D could be improved, so you're very likely to get useful
