Maybe when there's something concrete on the table we can all stop bickering over principles, definitions, quotes from authority figures etc. and get some real world experience. And when it gets rejected, at least you can still forkit ;)
They keep pulling me back in!!
But yes. So it seems we both wanted **exactly** the same thing.
Not some drawn out process where everyone will complain about this and that... but something one can start writing code with, and see what happens from there.
Thanks for you reffort, whether you like the idea or not ;-)

This actually was never about making noise to 'get the feature in', but making noise to discover what people think about the idea, which is very interesting in itself.
The feature, even if it got into D, would not change my perspective on D, just based on that one feature. I still think other languages much better understand the concept of a user-defined type, than D, whose user-defined type outsources its own destiny, to the module! That is a complete joke to me. And always will be.
Mmm...I'm not sure why you're picking on my post there, since it was clearly in response to another idea.. but hey...
In any case, I reserve the right to bring up the point, or any point, whenever, and whereever I think it is appropriate.
