Some people complain bitterly about any additional size to the executable at 
all, whether they use all of the symbols in it or not, and if they don't use 
all of the symbols, then they're that much more annoyed by the additional 
size. It crops of semi-frequently around here that someone complains about how 
big hello world is. Most of the problem goes away if phobos because a shared 
library like it's going to eventually, but someone is always going to be 
complaining about binary size - especially with a systems language.
