As those of you who do write some non-toy projects in D know, from time

library to another to "detrigger" the issue creating mess marked "Issue 
9044 workaround". It become really annoying when your one-file project 
using an external library fails as it forcing you to juggle with that 
library files (e.g. VisualD's `cpp2d` project which triggers the issue 
randomly).

I'd never complain about such things but the language is tend to be 
self-called stable by main maintainers and I'd like to finally see an 
official definition of this "stability" as it obviously contradicts my 
personal very loyal definition (e.g. I have noting against breaking 
changes if they are in good direction).

I very much like this definition.

So now the issue is marked as duplicate of Issue 6461 [1]. The issue have no votes. There is no official answers about when it will be fixed. Am I the only one who meet it in almost every project at least at age about dozen days of development? [1] http://d.puremagic.com/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=6461 -- Денис В. Шеломовский Denis V.

I'm sorry about that one, but I am too swamped to work on it at the moment. Please, keep bugging me about it.
