digitalmars.D - `"Static If" Considered' C++ article

Hello,

A response to the "static if" proposal for C++ was made recently 
which was a rather severe critique. Has there been a response to 
this critique or are the conclusions of the article generally 
considered to be justified? I shall be attending the ACCU meeting 
this April and would like to raise the matter, but would first 
like to know the comments of those working on and with D.

Thank you,
Dominic Jones

It has been discussed quite extensively recently : http://forum.dlang.org/thread/cdgzdesltjefjvnjbspk forum.dlang.org There are plenty of opinions from D users in that topic ;)

As I understand, they just asked to not rush with static if and give them time to come up with an alternative proposal.
