Yes. Attempting to hide the fact that strings are UTF-8 is just doomed. It's like trying to pretend that floating point does not do rounding.

It's far more practical to embrace what it is and deal with it. Yes, D programmers will need to understand what UTF-8 is. I don't see any way around that.

And it's the right choice. 4 of the 7 billion people in the world today are in Asia and by 2100 80% of the worlds population will be in Asia and Africa.
