TL;DR: see here

explanation of what open multi-methods are, if you are not
familiar with the idea.You may also want to read my article on
Earlier this year I attended Ali Çehreli's talk at C++ Now. He
did a good job: I walked out with the desire to learn about D and
see how it measures up against C++, especially in terms of
meta-programming and language extensibility. The first
programming language I learned is Forth and I did some Lisp
programming, so as you can imagine, my expectations are high.
As an experiment, I decided to try to port parts of my yomm11
library to D. The experience turned out to be pleasant and I
ended up writing a full implementation, with some friendly help
from Ali and others in the Learn forum.
I think that what I have now is good enough to show. The git repo
is here https://github.com/jll63/methods.d and I will post a
package to the registry soon.
If you have the inclination, feel free to review and comment.
This is my very first D project and I certainly have missed some
idioms and been clumsy at times.
