Shouldn't this be pulled and put behind a switch? I thought D's
GC was supposed to be pluggable.
This way people could actually try to use it easily and provide
valuable real-world feedback and use cases. With some luck we
could even get someone to contribute/improve the GC (at least for
their use cases).
It doesn't have to be the default. It doesn't have to be perfect
to be released as experimental.
I would probably try it if I could enable it with a simple
compiler/application switch, but I'm not going to pull and build
it from the source.
Sounds to me like current situation actively blocks people from
contributing instead of encouraging them.
