I've gotten a fair amount of feedback over the years "why isn't @safe the 
default" and having it not be the default implies D isn't serious about memory 
safety. I'm worn out suggesting that annotating with @safe is not a problem.

Delaying making @safe the default any longer is a serious strategic mistake.
