Yes, that's is what makes the difference. Nim has all the degrees 
of freedom when it comes to changing GC algorithms and has 
several possible GC algorithm that the programmer can choose 
from. D is painted into a corner because the lack of managed 

Also, regarding DIP1000 and DIP1021 is going nowhere. I haven't 
seen any plan what this would in the end produce and therefore it 
is just an unplanned attempt and has nothing to do with improving 
the GC.
