It's been almost a year since the DIP was accepted. Has anybody 
stepped up to implement it, and if not, does the DLF have any 
plans to rectify this (insofar as resources permit)?
It's not easy to find people, especially for tasks like this; I'm 
just curious is all.

Hi, I had this questions myself, so I played with it a couple of weeks ago. It was my first dive into the dmd codebase and it shows. It is super hackish. Anyway, I was able to get something which passed my tests in like 2 days, but I'm not even sure there is anything salvageable from that work, as it is full of debug printf statements and global variables that just shows I had no idea what I was doing :) Juraj

Max Haughton began an implementation, but I believe it's currently stalled. He can provide more info.

I've resurrected/restarted it, and will be working on it tonight as soon as I've got this __traits(arguments) thing for Adam finished. The issue is supporting all the edge cases.
