If you could make any changes to D, what would they look like?

For me the top priority would be to make what D already has more 
robust and fix some really annoying bugs about delegates and 
member alias parameters like issue 
[#5710](https://issues.dlang.org/show_bug.cgi?id=5710) that was 
fixed and then reverted.

There are a lot of other "features" that are half finished or in 
"preview" and "experimental" forever that could be made stable 

Sure, there are some features (e.g. tuples and destructuring) 
that I really want but ironing out what is already there is way 
more important for me. The issue I linked before was one that I 
discovered like 5m after trying out D and still bugs me out to 
this day.
