D should take the same route as Nim. Nim has several garbage 
collection algorithms and can swap them out as they see fit. 
Latest reference counting algorithm has been a success for Nim 
and the language just keep on improving because they have 
invested in good GC as well an architecture where they can 
continue to play with different approaches.

GC is not bad but the language must support changing GC 

D is in a corner here a can go nowhere.
