The precise GC is going to continue to hang until it can be tweaked to be as fast or faster than the conservative GC we have now.


In which cases?
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.
