If they are not the same bit pattern, I think this is fine.  is should be a
bitwise compare.  I don't know enough about floating point to know whether they
are the same bit pattern.

In my understanding of floating point, this means that:

if(x is typeof(x).nan) ...

is not wise code -- it may fail if the exact nan bitpattern is different (my
understanding is that nan has multiple representations).  While it may be
unintuitive, that is no fault of D -- floating point is sometimes very
unintuitive.
