Russel has basically answered the question for me. Plugins for
IDEs are indispensable, both beginners and experienced
programmers appreciate the simplicity of IDEs and plugins. A good
asset would be a plugin for Android Studio that compiles and
packages your D library automatically.
Apart from that, your vision document is sound because it focuses
on practical things that programmers would encounter in their
everyday work life.
