D most certainly needs stronger typing, not sure why it tries to
propagate the weak typing of C. I find myself adding extra
template parameters and "explicit" in my C++ code just to get
stronger typing. New AoT languages ought to do better than C++.
What Go really got right was to have untyped literals. If you
combine that with a orthogonal weak-cast operator with pleasant
syntax then you have something.
Strong explicit typing also makes it possible to overload on
return values... Something I really want to see in a C++
