Yes, the DIP is here:

It's currently stalled while I elaborate on the merits, or lack 
thereof, of a library solution.  The best library implementation 
I've seen is

I'm exploring the idea of continuing with the DIP, or adding 
features (or removing limitations of the language) to make a 
library implementation more appealing.  IMO, it'd be great if we 
could add more composable primitives to the language, and get rid 
of quirky features like @property.
