(I may have mentioned this before, but I can’t find a relevant 
old post. Apologies if I’m repeating myself.)

I would like to see D move ahead in performance terms. Being 
faster than C/C++ is a very tall order since compilers tends to 
use common backend machinery and possibly other bits and pieces - 
I don’t know.

I would like to see ideas for features that support killer 
optimisations and better use of hardware - need ideas for this 
though. For example, D’s SIMD and parallelism support are 
excellent. Pure could be another.

I see hope for this because it seems to me that D possibly has 
more freedom to evolve than say C++ and especially C.
