Is this solely thanks to using ldc as host compiler? What are the flags passed to ldc when building dmd? Profile guided optimization?

There's also the option of improving the diagnostic of unreachable code.

Is there? Issue 14835 was reported in 2015. If nobody's been able to come up with an improvement in 5 years, what are the odds that this year will be the one that lets us finally crack it?

Genuine question, by the way. If it's just an issue of "nobody's had time to work on it," then there may be nothing to worry about.

I agree, this is unfortunate. Did you read Andreis comment at the bottom for the Bugzilla issue?

I guess I need to look at the code in dmd. I'm guessing it's a long function with lots of state as Walter alluded to in a DConf talk.
