Yes please. -- Andrei

You did say that something with the same effect as 'virtual' was going in.

It
1. allows escaping final, which we can't do without it or an equivalent
2. does exactly what everybody expects
3. is already implemented
4. looks much nicer than your proposal

Why not just leave it in? I'm already using it, and it makes extern(C++) classes MUCH more readable (ie DDMD)
