Seems to me that the most important advantage of moving to D is
to attract developers that are unfamiliar with C++, so using
selected parts of Phobos would make it a lot easier and fun for
them to contribute.
I assume refactoring, high quality documentation and perhaps a
tutorial too, of course. Seems to me that lowering the "anxiety
threshold" could be an important move.
Exactly. I was surprised to find out I couldn't use Phobos in
ddmd. Raw D is still more pleasant than programming in C++, but
not nearly as much fun as writing normal D code.
