D street cred: Just a thought

Just a thought for boosting D's street cred:

Perhaps...take a worthwhile C/C++ project with real potential, fork it, 
and port it to D. And make a real commitment to maintaining it. 
Obviously a bit of a gambit, granted, but the potential payout is 
improving a worthwhile tool's maintainability while showing off a 
real-world example of the benefits and practical worthiness of switching 
to D.

Just a thought.

In a similar vein, I have to say I'm thoroughly impressed with what I've 
learned of Mir. AIUI, aside from being a fantastic lib, it looks like a 
tool with very high widespread potential that's written in D, yet also 
targets, more or less, C/C++ users in addition to D users. A tactic I've 
definitely been in favor of[1] and would love to see pushed as far as it 
can go.

Rah rah, D, sys boom bah, insert mental image here of me
