digitalmars.D - "Forward reference" eror message improvement?

reply "Mehrdad" <wfunction hotmail.com> writes:
auto fact(int n) { return n > 1 ? fact(n - 1) : 0; }

// Error: forward reference to fact


I think the error message could be improved... maybe something like "forward 
reference to inferred return type" like we get with templates?
