The advantage in appealing to C and C++ programmers is that
people who have an interest in compilers and performant libraries
tend to also know either C or C++. I essentially don't think it
matters so much how many users D has, as long as it can draw in
people that pull in the same direction.
It doesn't really help to have a gazillion low quality do-nothing
packages like npm... Stuff like Mir does help, but that is on the
C-end of programming, not on the Java-end.
I think there is way too much emphasis on the number of libraries
or users a language has.
