D - What about Signals and Callbacks?

GNU's GTK+ relies very heavily on signals and callbacks and I'm sure 
other libraries (especially GUI toolkits) could use this kind of 
communication, so wouldn't it be sensible to put it in the language? 
I've gone through the spec some and didn't see anything like that.

They don't need to be built into the language; it's really easy to wrap 
a set of delegates to achieve the same end result.
