I hope to see better in D.

BTW, what is the current state of SIMD in DMD? In 2.060 core.simd module is not even mentioned in Library Reference. It's present in the install, has some type definitions like int4 or double2 but it's unclear if those types actually use SIMD instructions and for what operations.
