Yes, that's the intended goal.
However, to convince everyone involved and to be able to experiment with this in the wild for a bit, we went with std.experimental first.

If drawbacks get discovered, it's a lot easier to retreat.

Cool.

Do you know if compilation speed improves if using selective imports? E.g.
import std.experimental.scripting : writeln;
vs.
import std.experimental.scripting;

I suppose that's a general question wrt public imports, but in this case there is probably more to parse than in other smaller projects.

AFACIT selective imports have no impact on the compilation speed at the moment. It's quite likely that future versions of the compiler will take selective imports into account, but at the moment DMD reads the world of everything and only stops at templated structs/functions/classes etc.
