D's implementation of functional purity supports "weak" purity - functions
that can mutate arguments but are otherwise traditionally pure.

I wrote a post about some of the practical benefits of this kind of purity:

Very well-written, someone post it on Reddit.

Queue my usual harangue:

Articles do MUCH MUCH better on reddit if, when posted, a brief description of the content of the article is also posted. Like what sarn posted here.

Not doing so seriously blunts the value. People need a reason to click on the article. It's why when you google something, you don't just get a list of links. You get a blurb with each link.
