Python is also used for a lot of "real" programming tasks these 
days. D is perfectly suited for scripts of 200 lines. 
Moderate-sized programs typically start as small scripts and grow 
over time. You don't have to convince anyone to switch languages 
if they start out with D. Neither Walter or Andrei has a 
scripting background, rather they are from the large-scale 
enterprise software world, and that led to the current emphasis 
on that segment. There's no reason the community can't pick up 
the ball and carry it into other arenas.
