Are there plans to deprecate the built-in complex types soon?

I assume they will be deprecated when a library replacement is feasible and implemented.

and implemented.

I thought that the implementation of std.complex was already adequate?

It is supposed to be, at least. :) If it's not, I'd very much like to know what's wrong or missing. -Lars

It can't happen until more work is done on the compiler's treatment of opEquals(). Note that there will be a large amount of work in removing it from the compiler. Moving AAs from the compiler to the runtime was horrific in terms of the subtle regressions it caused -- and it already used runtime calls for every operation it supported. Complex will be much, much worse.
