the point that it is ...almost boring!!!

Whenever you feel it is too boring you could start to write an module in

Empire in D takes less than half as long to compile as the same code in C++. (Both are optimized builds.) This is illuminating, since the identical optimizer, code gen, and linker are used. The difference is the front end speed.
