LDC rivals clang of course. On what metric do you think it 
And if you have used C++ professionally, yes you stumble upon 
compiler bugs. I certainly have. And in that case there is often 
no nice bugtracker to file that bug.

D having one front-end means that in practice you have less

Yes really, it is very difficult to keep up with the C++ changes 
even if you were a full-time C++ programmer. And you need to 
since people start to use the new stuff when available. It is 
very likely that when the next standard comes out, you would have
