Seems like you have inspired people...

That is kind of neat. While I can say that D can perform technically the same feat via pragma(msg, ...) and importing a file directly (would leave a comment on the blog, but there isn't a spot for it), the fact that you can execute arbitrary code in a block at compile time that can use the *actual* i/o routines you would use at runtime is pretty impressive.

Stefan would have a field day with this power :)

Yeah, it feels C++'y when you need to leave CTFE if you want to print some value computed in CTFE or use it as a name of file to load. :/
