D would be interesting but it's also not memory-safe. Not strictly. You can restrict yourself to SafeD, but then you're stuck with a GC you don't really want. Or you can tag all your functions as @Safe, but then it's just a "best practice" and you can't do it everywhere because you can't do things like make system calls.

D has some interesting bits, but it did a lot of head-scratching stuff too. It seemed really confused about what target it was going after, like some middle ground between C#/Java & C/C++ that really doesn't seem to exist.
