Blasphemy! :p Impure-by-default System-by-default Lack of unique storage class Can't think of anything for #4 and #5 If you also allow features that I feel are missing: Unicode operator overloading Restrictions based on UDAs (nothrow, pure, nogc, safe, trusted and system implemented in Druntime instead of the compiler? Yes please) -- Simen

Interesting. Thank you very much for the insight. Somehow I find myself hoping that we have a little more than 256 users: 255 not counting myself since I'm a member of that group. I really appreciate you taking the time to respond though.

That's right. akeron.com is taken. Although... it's been in it's current state since 1994. I purchased akeron.co a couple days ago after making the decision it's time to start moving forward with my business. -- Andrew Edwards
