A comment on the visualization thing. Is this really a big issue? 
  Data processing (D's strong point) and visualization are 
different tasks, and presumably as long as outputs are to 
standard file types (ie. NetCDF, HDF5 or other domain specific 
formats) then existing visualization tools should be usable.

I did some image processing work with D and didn't find the lack 
of specific D tools for visualization a big issue.

There is some advantage to being able to perform visualization 
tasks in the same lanaguage as you do the data processing work, 
but I wouldn't this this would be a major obstacle.
