dmd and C++11
What's the stance on using C++11 features in the dmd source code 
in the future?

Well, how many C++11 features does DMC support?

*sigh*
Totally forgot about that. Can't we finally get rid of that 
crappy toolchain :'(
btw, wasn't there a patch to make dmd compile with VisualStudio 
cl?

It supports decltype but not auto??
Range for loop would also be nice to have.

Visual Studio support of C++11 is pretty weak (or maybe more accurately 
'spotty') in VS2010, and this will be virtually unchanged in the next 
version.  On the plus side what is there (rvalue references, auto) is 
nice to have.  On the downside what is missing is really sad (varaidic 
templates, range for, the full set of C++11 type traits, the new unicode 
string types and literals, initializer lists, and a few others I can't 
remember easily)

With CTFE D has far better than user defined literals.

If I undestood you correctly...
Potentially, yes, But, from syntactical point of view, is there any
predefined mean to make something like "a = 2_x + 3_y * 180_deg"
expression? I'm asking because the "mixin( foo( import( .... )))" are a bit
too unfriendly in terms of error reports they yield. If there are better
ways of doing so, I'd definitely want to know it.

In std.conv, the octal template is one example:

int a = octal!755;

Another thing I like doing is using simple structs.
For instance:

struct Html { string src; }

Usage:

Html myhtml = Html("<b>some text</b>");



Which is really easy too.
