I say again, do you have measurements to back up your statement?
Parsing is actually very fast with the DMD front end. I can't believe
that it will take half a second to parse a Phobos module -- the
compiler's parser is not that stupid. I have a 1600+ line module that
compiles in about 0.4 seconds (that's lexing + parsing + semantic +
codegen), but that time more than doubles when you just change a loop
into a range-based algorithm. Clearly, parsing is not the bottleneck
