My point wasn't that visualization isn't important, it is that in 
most scientific computing it is very easy (and sensible) to 
separate the processing and visualization aspects.  So lack of D 
visualization tools should not hinder  its value as a data 
processing tool.

For example, Hadoop is immensely popular for data processing, but 
it includes no visualization tools. That is a slightly different 
domain I understand, but there are similarities.

So in short, if there were nice D visualization tools that would 
certainly be helpful, but I don't think is should be a show
