I'd like to see D care more about this, method hiding:


class Foo {
    string name = "c1";
    static void foo() {}
}
class Bar : Foo {
    string name = "c2";
    static void foo() {} // silent method hiding
}
void main() {}


In such situations I'd like D to require the use of a "new" keyword as C# does
(as with 'override', it first becomes a warning):


class Foo {
    string name = "c1";
    static void foo() {}
}
class Bar : Foo {
    string name = "c2";
    static new void foo() {} // method hiding is now visible
}
void main() {}


The point here is to make the purpose and meaning of the code more explicit.

 Override usage is going to be (hopefully soon) compulsory in D
 (currently you need -w to see an error). So that code without
 both static and override is going to be refused :-)

I guess the question I was getting at, currently there is no way to "hide" a non-static member function like you would do in C# with 'new.' Is that intended once 'override' is required? and if not why have 'new' usable for static methods?

I completely agree. If we have mandatory override, we should have this as well.
