if (c1)
{
    while (c2)
        stmt1
    else
        stmt2
}

It should do that of course.

In such situations the compiler can warn the developer, perhaps it can be bound
to -w switch. 

General the developers uses this form:

if (c1)
{
    while (c2)
        stmt1
}
else
    stmt2

instead of:

if (c1)
    while (c2)
        stmt1
else
    stmt2

D2 is in alpha status, isn't it. I see some changes on D2 that breaks code.
You should decide whether the new feature is important and necessary enough to
accept the risk of code breaks or not. 

I usually feel the need for that feature.

an example on fetching rows from db:

while (row = query.nextRow())
    writeln(row);
else
    writeln("no row");

It's really a nice feature. I think D should collect all the nice features
itself.
