The GC is not as slow and annoying as it used to be. When I went
to Dconf 2019 I was surprised to learn that it had been speed-up
during the year (with both fork-GC and speed-up efforts by Rainer
IIRC) but this wasn't advertised anywhere. IT's easy to be under
the impression that the GC is the same than 10 years ago when
it's not written anywhere what changes happened, you'd have to
peruse all the release notes. Who knows the real timeline of GC
improvement in D? What happened?
