It sure does.  But I see it as a temporary measure so that I can freely hack 
on a particular class without recompiling loads.  As I said, when someone 
(and their CPU) has nothing to do, they can move all the d variables into the 
class proper.

It does mention "make compilation faster by reducing the number of nested 
#include directives".   My argument is more about not changing the size or 
layout of the class (I don't want to recompile Krita just because I added a 
single variable to a class, which I might even remove later).  d-pointers can 
also be used for sharing but that's not my intention (I doubt assigning 
KisView's would make sense :)).
