digitalmars.D - Things to Discuss at DConf 2014

I'm not going to DConf myself, but I'll make this thread so 
people can list out a few things worth discussing while various 
important D contributors are all gathered together at DConf 2014.

During the last conference, people met up to discuss ref const(T) 
and references to r-values, etc. There was some feeling at the 
time of having a solution ready for the issue, and a lot of 
discussion afterwards, but the end result was that we ended up 
not having a solution in place a year later. Could this be 
brought up again? Is there a solution to be had at all? I hate to 
sound like I'm nagging, but I think it's worth talking about.

It would be nice to solve this. There is *a ton* of const reference stuff in a typical C++ library. I always have to convert these into pass-by-value, and my gut feeling is that performance suffers because of this.

I'd really like that too. I was the main driving force behind that conversation last year, and I'm not going this year :( So someone else will have to carry the flag...?
