Right. Kenji is true D celebrity. Funniest thing happen in cases like this when he reports the bug himself and soon fixes it, later bug is hit by someone else but during reporting it is realized that bug is already fixed, pull is pushed to master and everyone salutes Kenji.

What bothers me is that some (in fact, probably many) delicate language cases are silently fixed by Kenji without proper documentation so D language has some sparse and obsolete spec, even more obsolete book and sporadic patches - just couple of developers are aware about each of them. When someone hits corner language case - weird compiler behavior it is general unknown what should compiler do, whether current behavior is bug or a fix for some other previous bug about which you are unaware of. When different parts of language interact, problem becomes even more complicated.

Obviously Kenji has a time machine. With it, he discovers bugs in the future and fixes them in the present and sometimes even in the past.
