There's nothing wrong with @trusted lambdas. The recent FUD around them is almost entirely unjustified.

The reason I hesitate to recommend -preview=dip1000 to a beginning D programmer is that because the documentation is incomplete, it can be very difficult to *debug* DIP 1000 errors, and because the implementation has several known bugs, you cannot simply rely on the compiler to tell you when you've gotten things right.
