Unofficial wish list status.
Hi

This is the monthly status for the unofficial d wish list: 
http://all-technology.com/eigenpolls/dwishlist/

Right now the wish list looks like this:

95  array initialization/literals
68  Reflection API
63  Stack tracing
62  vectorization
57  Faster GC 
47  Short syntax for new
41  Improved Foreach
39  unit test after compilation
38  Multiple opCast per class
35  extra compiler values
33  Multiple return values (tuples
32  Unit test isolation 
32  readonly/const enforcement
31  Stack allocated classes.
30  Native AMD64 codegen
28  Posix threads support native
28  Auto new-ing of classes
27  Array masking
25  Explicit out/inout
25  !in
23  Explicit type initializers
22  black box unit testing
22  associative arrays by index
22  Foreach on first/on last
21  unit test coverage 
21  unit test & code separation
21  coherent assoc. array syntax
21  better syntax for cast
20  Debug check for null reference
19  Unit test measurements
19  Renaming ctor/dtor
19  Weak references/pointers
18  Consistent struct/class sizeof
18  auto-member objects
17  Pass value params byref
16  Header File generation by DMD
16  Return-type overloading
15  Templates in classes
14  proper cast operators
14  User-defined sync function
12  Conditional syncronized
12  Non-Static isExpression
12  Explicit module `friendship`
12  Experimental d compiler
10  Array pushback/popback
8  Eigenpoll fix
7  Call log
6  Against class instance sizeof
6  opIn
5  OS X Build
4  imag and comp FP types.
3  Built-in variant type
3  Iterators and Generators
3  inout variable and return
2  Pascal like sets
2  Precise names for floats
1  Add native string type
0  D library contest

Re: Unofficial wish list status.
I guess I'm the only one who wants this, but "concepts" (as suggested for C++).
Would allow for a nice collection library without the overhead of interfaces
(like java) and with reasonable compile time conformance checking (unlike C++).

This may not be too hard to work around in one's own code. Hmm, which 
suggests an idea:

Dsource should have a "project" that is aimed at presenting the cleanest 
ways in D to work around some of the often asked-for features.
