True, but it's best to avoid exaggeration if you don't want to be

Also true, I just think that being hyperbolically negative and 
blaming the attitude of D's contributors is unfair. There's 
plenty of people fixing bugs in existing features (just look at 
the changelog of new releases), but sometimes it's hard to keep 
up, and other times it's impossible to 'finish' things. CTFE 
started as a simple extension to constant folding, but nowadays 
some D programs do very complex things with it, hitting 
limitations and getting compile-time performance problems. That's 
not because the implementation of CTFE was abandoned 80% through 
in favor of a new shiny feature, it's because there was never a 
clear 100% to begin with, it's ever evolving.
