There's a hoary old joke about some explorer who scours the world for the
grave of Mozart. When he finally locates and open the tomb, he finds the
old-dead-guy tearing up his manuscripts ...

"What are you doing?! Those are priceless treasures!" he cries.
"De-composing" replies Mozart.

So ... it just struck me that Walter may have surreptitiously snuck in a
crafty one regarding the D compiler (de-compile?).
