The whole FAQ is very outdated. A couple of the problems are major:

1. "Why emphasize implementation ease?"
---> This is highly embarassing wrt to the number of bugs in Bugzilla. It needs
to be removed. D does not emphasize implementation ease. Not any more.

2. The final point, "why can't the compiler infer purity?" should mention that
the compiler does infer purity in many cases now!

3. "Can't garbage collection be done in C++ with an add-on library?"
--> this doesn't belong in the D spec.

4. "Doesn't C++ support strings, etc. with STL?"
--> parts of this belong on the Rationale page. The rest should be removed.
