They may yet make it into C++ in some form or another, but the lack of
ranges in C++ is one of the things that I find really frustrating when I
doing stuff for work. In particular, it's incredibly quick and easy to write
parsing code for stuff in D with Phobos, whereas it takes a lot more time
and effort to write it in C++. But just in general, I find that putting
stuff together in D is faster than using C++. C++ is very powerful, but it's
also quite clunky.
