Can you explain me how do you think it can be done while there is
even no official object streaming for D ?
Just one thing: "@widget" is not enough.
I don't know how to explain you the problem. But let's say you
have an object inspector that displays the properties of an
object. The D way doesn't work (templates). You won't be able to
assign an untyped Object to an inspector if your object doesn't
store runtime informations. It's just impossible. Furthemore
properties are not just for the visual things...
You won't be able to make a good run-time designer "à la Delphi"
until the D standard library gets a serialization library. And
when this will happen, you won't be able to use this
serialization library because it won't work at run-time (object
inspectors, property bindings, etc.).
It won't work.
