There isn't much point in giving the type of null an explicit name given that it doesn't come up very often, and typeof(null) is quite explicit about what the type is. Also, anyone doing much generic programming in D is going to be well versed in typeof. They might not know about typeof(null) explicitly, but they should recognize what it means when they see it, and if someone were trying to get the type of null, it would be the obvious thing to try anyway. And typeof(null) isn't even the prime case where typeof gets used on something other than an object. From what I've seen, typeof(return) gets used far more.


you're right but I see two cases:

- transpiling
- header generation
