Just watched the whole video, even though I've seen a prior version of this talk. It was different enough in the jokes and delivery that I still enjoyed it. Some notes:

1. Saying "Anywho" to segue to a new topic seems to be a verbal tic of Andrei's now.

2. It's claimed that scoped imports sped up D compilation: has this been measured? It would help if measurements were cited, as done for compile-time regex performance at the end.

3. It's better that you show usage examples of a PEGGED grammar now, as opposed to a previous talk that ended with the mixin slide, but I think it'd be best if you actually worked a toy example out and showed the generated D code, to really drive the point home. Even better if it wasn't something you could trivially write in D itself, like the arithmetic example you gave.
