Gofix, "a tool to mechanically update code to accommodate language and
library changes."

Mr. Pike talks more about it starting at 8:26

I wish D had such a tool.  Any chance?

Static analysis and other dev tools have a chain of dependencies, the beginning of which is a complete and correct grammar definition. I've been working on one for the past several days. There is a chance that such a tool could be created for D, but there's a lot of work to be done to get there.
