I've given Mono-D the first serious try recently (I'm using a

Good to see progress on the auto completion, as that was the
only thing that still was a little annoying - annoying just
because it usually works so well that you quickly come to rely
on it and thus also immediately notice when it fails. There is
probably some kind of "uncanny valley" there, where it either
has to be perfect, or very sketchy (based on text buffers) to
be comfortable to use.
This is basically a very situation-dependent thing, as it
sometimes is just not able to deduce the currrently initialized
type, although I've already built-in recognition pass-throughs if
template parameters couldn't be satisfied.
I've also made hard-coded Tuple completion available - and
although this might not be the best idea, it's actually a big
leap forward even without having to spend too much time on
deducing each template (or handling CTFE - this is still a thing
I don't want to touch atm).
