Hopefully companies which are interested in leveraging D's
performance/syntax combination will consult with the Foundation and so the
finances (both the Foundation's and thereby Andrei's) will be taken care of.
The Python foundation seems to have done that nicely for Python.
While I'm still "getting my D-legs" (<
https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/sea_legs) I do think D is the right way to
combine Python-like high level syntax and C/C++-level power. I tried Cython
but somehow it didn't click for me. And as for Go and Rust and all those
other contenders, naah... [Is it even possible to write a Go/Rust compiler
in Go/Rust? Or have they tried?]
Of course, all this is made possible by the great D community, the "Demos"
(https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/demos#Latin). [Sorry, somehow I'm in the
dictionary/alliteration mood ;-)]
