This is quite an interesting article, with D version 2.0 on it's way I 
guess this might be of some interest to Walter.

I don't know squat about RapidMind, but Michael McCool's last big project was Sh, which is a very nifty way to leverage the power of GPUs. So I bet there's some connection between these two projects. --bb

Good Article!  If D had builtin support for transparent parallezation, 
it could easily be the number one contender for the new market of 
multi-core, which according to many is the unavoidable future ( to quote 
Sutter 'The free lunch is over' ).

I'll go ahead and use this post to voice my unwavering agenda as well :D 
, what D needs is language stability, a large standard library, and 
tools tools tools!
