digitalmars.D - Module of assumeUnique

Sorry if this has already been discussed/fixed: should assumeUnique and 
pointsTo still belong in std.exception? I remember the module was name 
std.contracts but now this seems awkward...

Thanks.

It's not like it makes any more sense for it to be in std.contracts. assumeUnique has nothing to do with contracts. But where else would it go? There really isn't a good place to put it, and moving it would break code. - Jonathan M Davis

Perhaps something like std.util? -- /Jacob Carlborg

I think things are fine as they are. Andrei

assumptions about arrays. It would break less code there. But it's ok where it is after all. I can cope with this little oddity. Thanks.

I think object.d is already crowded as it is. It should be split in several other modules and then object.d can publicly import them. -- /Jacob Carlborg

My point is that there isn't currently a good module to put it in. We'd have to create a new module (and std.util may be a good name for it), but unless we have several functions which make sense in there, it seems kind of silly to create a new module. - Jonathan M Davis
