If the .stringof is only used in templates, then there is no increase --
except insofar as you are able to do more with D, which allows you to
build more and possibly larger applications.
If it's used in CTFE functions, that can be an issue. In the average
case, you've got string constants increased in size by maybe a factor of
four (ballpark guess). Probably not more than a factor of ten. I'm not
sure what portion of a DMD binary, on average, is devoted to type name
