D gets a brief, but good plug:

The system we came up with has obvious comparisons to D’s take on const and immutable; just as D’s const is a view over mutable or immutable data, so too is our readonly. And just as D added deepness to the concept of const, so did we in our permissions model generally. This is perhaps the closest analogy in any existing systems. I am frankly surprised it doesn’t get used an order of magnitude more than it does, although Andrei, one of its chief developers, has some thoughts on that topic.
