C ABI is a stright-jacket that ensures e.g. that your callstack is laid out correctly so that a ‘ret’ will bring you back to the call site not somewhere else. Do I need to mention libc’s machinations done “for compatibility”.

Who the fuck were these guys to steal the pleasure of misaligned stacks and wrong push/pop order? Or register save missed?

The reality is we are programming on top of increasingly complex run-times that solve low-level problems to certain extents. That includes C (even w/o libc) and pretty much any other high-level language.

D rocks!

"D is in a conflicted position regarding the bounds checking conundrum. The language is trying to offer at the same time the safety and convenience of modern languages and the ultimate unmuffled performance sought by system-level programmers. The bounds checking issue implies a choice between the two, and D allows you to make that choice instead of making it for you."
