Indeed. Next focus should be on completing this, and getting aligned with the stable branch in upstream DMD. I think the best way to allow smooth transition would be to align up headers between the last C++ release and current stable, then make sure that the backend is able to deal with both versions without any special treatment. In my time offline, there's already been dozens of fixes I've pull in to align the headers up. This may end up in the next increasingly wrong 2.068 release. Or perhaps just give it the version 2.068.9¾.
