Inspired by ponce idioms list for D I've set up something
There are some themes in D which come up regulary and are
discussed to the vomit. If something is agreed, it gets
forgotten sometimes and the theme disappears into oblivion (for
a few months :P). To prevent this, I've collected some
hot-discussed themes, their history and their current state. I
hope this helps to avoid unnecessary discussions in the future
and finally cut off these issues (either with an official
decision "Nope, keep as it is" or with an implementation).
I've tried to stay as objective as possible, but if something
seems to be too subjective, please let me know, so I can fix it.
Thanks. Many programmers find fault with this problem:
"No problem. But if you have more elements it could be annoying
to count them. That's why some D users wanted that the compiler
does that for them.
int[$] c = [1, 2, 3]; // the compiler detects the dollar and
count the elements for us"
