DIP 1034--Add a Bottom Type (reboot)--Formal Assessment Concluded

When I emailed Walter and Atila to officially launch the Formal Assessment of DIP 1034, "Add a Bottom Type (reboot)", I expected it would be three or four weeks before I received their final decision. So I was surprised when Walter replied two days later with the following response:

"Accepted with pleasure and enthusiasm. This is what DIPs should be like. I
intuitively felt that a bottom type was right for D, but failed to express it in
DIP1017. Dennis has done it right."

Atila was on vacation at the time, but as soon as he got back he responded:

"Seconded."

Congratulations to Dennis Korpel for a job well done, and thanks to everyone who provided feedback on this DIP from the Draft Review through to the Final Review.

Congratulations, Denis! Having used the `never` type in other languages (e.g. TypeScript), I'm very much looking forward to having it in D!
