oh D has more interesting things for a compiled language:
  - dynamic closures or delegates to nested functions
  - lazy evaluation
  - template mixins
  - garbage collection

I am not sure if all these things are really useful - but it looks 
interesting. especially the delegates stuff.

What I don't understand is, that they haven't changed the idiotic switch
