digitalmars.D - Optimizing Scala

Instead of following the suggestions that Andrei has given me three or four
times (to not pass delegates/function to higher-order functions, but use
aliases), Scala designers have chosen to create a smarter compiler:
"Optimizing Higher-Order Functions in Scala", by Iulian Dragoş:
http://infoscience.epfl.ch/record/128135/files/paper.pdf

Scala offers lot of stuff to copy from, at syntax level, programming paradigm
level, type system level and code optimization level too.
