I can make my own guesses, but I wanted to know what bearophile 
meant so I asked him ;-)

Still, you don't explain why you picked, say ATS, which is 
significantly more esoteric than D, and much less likely to be 
used by the community in the large. I argue that many more people 
would be interested in the performance of D.

Proof is, it seems to me that you (Isaac Gouy) often come around 
here. We can magically invoke you every time one talks about the 
shootout. Which is pretty astonishing for a language you aren't 
interested in.

I've used Clean before.

But yeah, probably not many people would be familiar with it.

Not really. You can set Google to email you whenever a search phrase turns up a 
new result.

Yes, that's more or less what I do.

I have a couple of Google searches saved as bookmarks, and when 
the mood takes me I check what comments are being made about the 
benchmarks game.
