D - Select statement?

I have a suggestion: let's include in D a select statement with non-static
conditions:

seclect ()
{
case a < b:
    ....
    break;
case sin(k) < cos(b):
    ....
    break;
case str == "12345":
    ....
    break;
case default:
    ....
    break;
}

which is equivalent to if - else if - else block, but in some cases more
compact and understandable.

I would not mind if instead of select another keyword would be used :)
