"I told you so": noreturn sucks a leech and has virtually no utility

After skimming the DIP, I must apologize for being hasty.

By just looking at the bugs posted and the Phobos changes, it seemed to 
me (wrongly, fortunately) that noreturn has had an incomplete definition 
and was sprawling as corner cases were discovered. Whereas there may be 
valid concerns with regard to its usefulness, at the very minimum any 
critique would need to debate the definition laid down in the DIP with 
laudable care.
