digitalmars.D - OT: van Rossum on static type hints

Guido talks about the benefits of (optional) static type (hints). 
  Says tools can infer types 60% of the time, which means almost 
half the time they can't.  Static type hints help catch bugs, 
help with IDEs, help code comprehensibility, and help code 
conversion.  Will allow annotation even of existing libraries.
