digitalmars.D.learn - proposal: remove case keyword

Hi,

simple question; do we need to write "case"
inside a switch statement? Is it needed for parsing?
To me it seems to be superfluous
and could be removed or at least made optional.

Opinions?

What is your proposed alternate syntax for case statements. You can't replace case A: with A: because then it'd look like a line label.
