Yes, that's one of the outstanding qualities of D, and one that I was
immensely impressed with when I perused the Phobos source code for the
first time.
Bartosz Milewski is a C++ programmer and a Haskell fan. He once gave a presentation at NWCPP where he wrote a few lines of Haskell code. Then, he showed the same code written using C++ template metaprogramming.

The Haskell bits in the C++ code were highlighted in red. It was like a sea of grass with a shrubbery here and there. Interestingly, by comparing the red dots in the C++ code with the Haskell code, you could understand what the C++ was doing. Without the red highlighting, it was a hopeless wall of < > :-)

Since I mention Bartosz, I should link to his blog:
