Incidentally, would it be a good idea to post a link to the
blog post on r/programming? Haven't done so yet, as generally
I prefer to leave decisions about D publicity to others, but
can do so if people would like.
I almost always like all the D posts I see on r/programming, but
in general if any language highlighted the efforts in the RNG
part of the standard library, I would like it. Too many languages
get it wrong or don't care enough about it. (My most basic litmus
test is to check a language's shuffle function... Too many fail,
even if they claim to do the Knuth shuffle, often they make the
small mistakes that matter)
It definitely gets my vote for publicizing.
