Hi,

given the discussions about memory management, I guess it might 
be worthwhile watching this session.


Surely can't be applied to D with the current type system, but it 
is nonetheless interesting to see how they manage memory.

I watched this earlier today, I and recommend this for any D programmers. The way the Rust language designers have dealt with issues of correctness and safety is really interesting. The effectively conflate const references with shared references, unique references with moves, and make copying more explicit than implicit. It's a really interesting approach.
