That was brilliant. I think Scott made two very good points. D needs

Really? What I got out of it was that D doesn't need people like him
because his job is to explain the inconsistencies of the language. By
designing a consistent language in the first place, people can readily
understand it in all context thereby eliminating the need for people
At roughly 04:55 he says:
"I am a professional explainer. That's my job. Who knew that you can
have a job doing that? Turns out you can actually make a career of it."
He gives a slew of examples of kind of things he's got to explain on a
daily basis and closes out the whole thing with:
"The message that I bring to the D Community, based on my experience
with with C++, is that the last thing D needs is somebody like me."
