I am in strong favor of being replaced rather than redesigned. 
The only thing that is preventing alias this from being replaced 
entirely is implicit conversions, which incidentally is a common 
use of alias this.

D can do implicit conversions differently than C++, as there are 
other languages out there that have implicit conversions that is 
(IMO at least) sane and reasonable.

The question is Walter: Are you willing to bite the bullet on 
this or you rather look for some alternative solution here?
