That was probably me. I don't recall ever saying all 
documentation and tutorials will be broken, but it will certainly 
cause problems for a lot of the material out in the wild, and 
it's the kind of breakage that will make folks run away. It's not 
just what's written in the documentation/tutorial either. You 
change one thing in a working example and all of a sudden it no 
longer compiles. Seriously, who changes to @safe by default in a 
regular release?

Ultimately it's up to the DIP author to make the case that this 
type of breakage won't happen. The author of this DIP did not do 
that, and anyone else making such a proposal would have it shot 
down immediately for exactly that reason.
