digitalmars.D - Comprehensive comprehensions

A part of Haskell has gained something that looks like a subset of LINQ (Python
list comps (lazy version too) are a subset of subset of them):

This comment says it's not as powerful as LINQ:
Unfortunately, we don't have the same abilities of query introspection etc as
LINQ does, so it isn't quite as powerful. It would also be hard to ship a
generalized list comprehension to the database due to their additional
generality over SQL (e.g. we support using your own sorting function).<
