A good technique for template inheritance can be found in Scala, a Java derivative. The most intriguing part is the way it allows types to be members of classes, which means you can quickly and easily express things that are incoherent in most other languages. The type system in Scala is perhaps much more than we want in D (it's reminiscent of ML), but this feature could be a useful part of templates. -- WilliamTanksley?
