digitalmars.D - [OT] Rust discussion about uniqueness/mutability

Niko Matsakis, Mozilla employee and member of the Rust core team, 
published a blog post on the terminology regarding mutability and 
uniqueness in Rust yesterday: 
http://smallcultfollowing.com/babysteps/blog/2014/05/13/focusing-on-ownership/

It's not directly related to the discussion we are currently 
having, and to most of us regulars their debate will appear to be 
somewhat trivial, as the distinction is so explicit in D and we 
don't have automatic borrowing. But maybe a look at a similar 
situation (but with different terminology) will lead to some nice 
ideas, so I figured I'd post this here.

Cheers,
David
