DMD actually implements pure as 'no reading or writing of mutable free variables' instead of 'no reading or writing of mutable static variables'. Is that going to change?

:) So if I got this timeline right in Native Panel Herb unintentionally takes a jab at D trying to keep the dynamic languages happy by saying, "and it is a mistake [...], that one tool is can subsume the other." -16:10 context at 13:45

Then the next day, you're presenting D wanting to cover Modeling Power, Modern Convenience (programer productivity) and efficiency.

Both your's and Andrei's presentations were great and suplemented each other nicely. I think Andrei did better at going over the syntax used to describe things, but I think there is some expectation people won't be wanting to know every detail about the language (well, except that they did as there was a question for each unique part of the syntax)
