Feature Request: "self" keyword to indicate "the current function"
This would effectively give us anonymous recursion for comparatively little effort.

Problems: "void test(typeof(self) foo, int bar);". To resolve this case requires infinite recursion support in the type system, or a generic "this type" type at the mangling level.

Or it could just be an error. :p On the other hand, if the above were made to work, we could implement the Y combinator in D. Not that we'd need it at that point. :p
