Uhm, you just listed features D don't need: string interpolation, 
named arguments and string conversion in a runtime (stupid idea). 
  The runtime should be slimmed down to a bare minimum. The type 
system should be fixed. Memory management and shared should be 
finalized. If that requires refactorning, great. Aaron certainly 
has a point.
