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.
