D was doing well but in the larger examples the D compiler crashed: "Error: more

The article didn't say it crashed.

That message only occurs for Win32 object files - it's a limitation of the OMF file format. We could change the object file format, but:

1. that means changing optlink, too, which is a more formidable task

2. the source file was a machine generated contrived one with 100,000 functions it in - not terribly likely to happen in a real case

3. I don't think Win32 has much of a future and is unlikely to be worth the investment
