D - Functions and Delegates

Just my 2 cents.

I think that function pointers and delegates should be interchangeble 
and use the same syntax.

int function( int ) foo;

int bar( int i )

foo = bar; // ok function address

class O
   static int bar( int i )

   int baz( int i )

O o = new O;

foo = O.bar; // ok function address
foo = O.baz; // error no object pointer
foo = o.baz; // ok encapsulates object pointer and method adress

This would make this a lot easier to understand and to implement 
signal/slot functionality in the language or in a library.
