Suggesting D would be an exercise in futility, unless I can create a notable project in D in my spare time that demonstrates its advantages and appeal to the masses. I tried to do this 2 years ago, but D failed me, primarily due to https://issues.dlang.org/show_bug.cgi?id=14758

I read this comment from you on another thread too, and (caveat: I'm not working in such resource constrained domains as you are) it seems sensible. It seems like it may be a good GSOC project to modify dmd as you suggest elsewhere. Have you considered trying to find someone to do that?

I believe D has the potential to bury all other emerging languages out there, but only if it drops its historical baggage. At the moment, I'm of the opinion that D will remain an obscure language until someone forks D and takes it in a different direction (unlikely), or the D Foundation decides to "reboot" and start working on D3 with a new, updated perspective (more unlikely).

I'd love to see a D3, but that seems unlikely, and more unlikely if D2 languishes. It seems though that your issues are with the implementation, not the language itself, so if you got your wishes below

Instead I suggest following through on things like
https://issues.dlang.org/show_bug.cgi?id=12270 and considering this proposal
(http://forum.dlang.org/post/psssnzurlzeqeneag...@forum.dlang.org) instead.

wouldn't you be mostly satisfied with D2?
