I'm happy to announce that Walter and Andrei have rendered their 
verdict on DIP 1014. They were in agreement on two points: they 
don't like it, but they know we need it. Given that there are no 
other alternative proposals and that they could see no 
alternative themselves, they decided to accept this DIP without 
modification.

Thanks to Shachar Shemesh for pushing the DIP through to the end 
of the process and for his patience throughout. And 
congratulations on obtaining a successful result.

I'll be getting the DIP queue moving again in short order. Walter 
and Andrei are currently considering DIP 1015 [2] and I expect to 
be able to announce their decision regarding it sooner than 
normal.

I'll be launching the Final Review round for Manu's DIP 1016 [3] 
in the coming days. And given the approval of this DIP and a 
sense of urgency underlying the need to fix the flaws of 
postblit, the next DIP to move out of Draft Review will be 
Razvan's Copy Constructor proposal [4]. Immediately after that, 
I'll start pushing the older DIPs into Community Review 
back-to-back, without pause.

I think that that probably sums the situation up pretty nicely. The fact that we need something like this is just plain ugly, and if it starts getting used frequently, there's definitely a problem, but there are use cases, where it's going to be invaluable. - Jonathan M Davis

This pull request is undoubtedly a major factor of Walter and Andrei approval of DIP 1014 https://github.com/dlang/druntime/pull/2310 Alex
