digitalmars.D - Digital Mars C++ should generate D 2 dot X

The implications and the impact are clear.

D is a better C++. Or at least becoming a better C++ was one of Walter's 
primary motivations.... to quote b.b.

C++ to D ... Undoable ? I doubt it.

Why ? There exists f.i. :
Eiffel to C. Smart Eiffel etc. And *NO* doubt about it : The generated 
code is unreadable.
But we have to keep in mind that ; The /distance/ between Eiffel and C 
is huge.
Multi Inherit. DBC etc.

The /distance/ between C++ and D is low.

In case that we do not expect a jewel as Digital Mars C++ generated D 
code (annotated, where it's matters) .........
