## digitalmars.D - OT: First-Class Statistical Missing Values Support in Julia 0.7

The Julia folks have done some interesting work with missing values that I thought might be of interest [1, 2]. Looks like it would be pretty easy to do something similar in D with either unions or Algebraic. The time-consuming part would be making sure everything works seamlessly with mathematical functions.

I wonder how it will be implemented as smooth in D, because it has to make sure everything that computes with empty is still empty and I believe it'll be a little challenging
