Walter taking 2 weeks to do something comparable to what the
clang and gcc guys have done over many years, serves as massive
advertising for D.
Also, here we now have an entire project written by the man
himself. That should serve as required reading for anybody who
wants to learn how to code in the latest D.
And it serves as a benchmark for the best C++ coders. They can
try to do the same in C++ in two weeks. (I bet by the end of the
two weeks the guys are ready to switch languages!)
