Your claim to have limited D skills doesn't prevent you from 
writing a blog post detailing the things that are missing for 
Windows development and showing how other languages deal with 
them. A lot of work with tooling doesn't require D skills for 
that matter (for instance, Eclipse plugins are not written in D 
AFAIK). You can ask the current tool developers how to help, 
report bugs, make suggestions, fix small bugs,.... The least 
effective thing to do is to post on the forum that the tools 
aren't good enough.
