digitalmars.D - new operator chaining (D vs Java)

I've used D to some extent since around 2004, but I don't recall 
noticing this before (although I wouldn't trust 9 year old 
memories!):

     D: (new Class()).foo();

     Java: new Class().foo();

Is there any particular (purposeful) reason why D cannot directly 
chain calls after new? (a quick Google search did not help).

This syntax will work in the next release (2.064).

Wow, now that is a coincidence! :-) (how it took me so long to notice it, just before it was going to be added to the language)

That isn't coincidence ;) BTW, it is supposed to work by spec for ages.

I have been adding parentheses in DWT for ages :(. At least it's good that it's finally changed. -- /Jacob Carlborg
