digitalmars.D - Re: We should deprecate C-style declarations

Don Wrote:

 Before TDPL is published, I think we should finally get rid of C-style 
 declarations. Supporting two styles of declarations just causes 
 confusion, and AFAIK it doesn't have any benefits -- for example, it 
 doesn't significantly help in porting code from C. D declarations are 
 just better. And there are bugs such as this one, which seem to require 
 abandoning C declarations:
 bug #2392 Parsing ambiguity between function pointer declaration and 
 function call
 At the very least, can we make sure that TDPL doesn't commit us to 
 retaining them forever?

Yes, please!
