Thank you for the simple nice article.
The poisoning approach. [...] This is the approach we've been

Yet, even in D most of the error messages after the first few
ones are often not so useful to me. So perhaps I'd like a
compiler switch to show only the first few error messages and
then stop the compiler.
Could you give an example? We've tried very hard to avoid useless
error messages, there should only be one error message for each
bug in the code.
Parser errors still generate a cascade of junk, and the "cannot
deduce function from argument types" message is still painful --
is that what you mean? Or something else?
