digitalmars.D - Codegen, D, scope and priorities

This is an interesting improvement: http://d.puremagic.com/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=9963 But I think we have also to think about priorities. I think people interested in D performance today use GDC or LDC, and they avoid DMD. And maybe this is not going to change. On the other hand if D misses some of its parts then all D users are affected. So isn't it more important for Walter to use his time (this is just an example) to define the exact semantics of "scope" keyword and to implement it, instead of optimizing small operations done by the DMD compiler? When is "scope" going to be worked on? (And even regarding just bugs, I think Issue 3789 is one hundred times more important and urgent than Issue 9963.) Bye, bearophile
