D - braces and try blocks

I wonder why does C++ require us to put braces around the try..catch blocks?
This seems just not logical, since all other constructs
have single-statement form. And it's actually quite often when I write
something like that:

    try
    {
        var = vars[name];
    }
    catch (out_of_range)
    {
        throw syntax_error("variable '" + name + "' not found'");
    }

All those {}s are just waste of time and space here, IMHO. I think that in D it
would be better not to force these... what do you
think?
