D1 users. Can a project Manager cross his heart and say that D1 will still be alive and well in five years time?

Will that project manager care?  Most build teams don't update compiler
versions very often--once a version has been settled upon that's pretty
much it, unless a show-stopping bug appears during development that
for some reason can't be worked around.  In fact, I can't even see a team
bothering to speculate about the future popularity of a language when
choosing it for a project.  The only thing that matters is whether it's a
good decision today, not five years from now.  If that weren't the case,
then there would have never been a call for COBOL programmers
during the Y2K transition.
