Yes, but for indies on a low budget tooling that allow you to cut 
costs would be an asset. So he probably chose the right tool for 
him for where he was at the time.

But clearly, a stop the world collector is not what you want, you 
would actually be better off writing your game-client in 

Still, having options that play well with each other would be a 
good thing. For instance, having ARC as an option in C++ would be 
a good thing. Having a single threaded compacting GC and ARC as 
options would be a good thing for D.

Not sure where D is heading... But yeah, too many people that 
wanted to use D for highly interactive apps have moved on. Trying 
to convince those that remain that the current GC is good for 
this application space will obviously not encourage them to stay. 
So not sure what the purpose of such rhetorical games are...
