Algebraic data types may be both product types and sum types:

From Wikipedia:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Algebraic_data_types

 Special cases of algebraic types are product types i.e. tuples and
 records (only one constructor), sum types or tagged unions (many
 constructors with a single argument) and enumerated types (many
 constructors with no arguments). Algebraic types are one kind of
 composite type (i.e. a type formed by combining other types).
So std.typecons.Tuple too is an algebraic data type, it's a product type. The data structure implemented by std.variant.Algebraic is just a special case of algebraic data type, it's a sum type. So it is better if the name of std.variant.Algebraic refers to 'sum type' or a 'tagged union' instead to generic data types. So maybe "taggedUnion" is a more descriptive name of its purposes for programmers of C-like languages. -- Configure issuemail: http://d.puremagic.com/issues/userprefs.cgi?tab=email ------- You are receiving this mail because: -------

I don't think there's an action item that can be derived from this. OK to
close?

Isn't WONTFIX more correct for this situation? :-) -- Configure issuemail: http://d.puremagic.com/issues/userprefs.cgi?tab=email ------- You are receiving this mail because: -------
