The last one:
Great! I see you've started moving the backend to D too, about
5% done so far.
How far do you plan to go in bringing D idioms to the compiler
itself? A simple grep shows 3 C-style `for` loops in the
frontend for every D `foreach`. Do you plan on using ranges and
algorithms, which likely means relying on Phobos at some point?
Any plans to turn on the GC someday? Please enlighten us on your
roadmap for how far you want to take the D conversion process.
