Sometimes D changes, and this requires many simple changes in Phobos. In such
and other cases to save some time I suggest D developers (Walter too) to take a
look at the free Coccinelle tool:

I think Coccinelle works on D code too (untested). It allows to define safe
semantic patches, that despite being very short, are able to patch lot of code
in seconds. Coccinelle looks useful for DMD/druntime too.

OT: the picture with the ninja turtle reference and tux bashing a bug is hilarious, just need a D man to join the party!
