You could write a good game with javascript + C++, or Dart + C++, 
if you keep the game world on the GC side. Not too bad for an 
indie game with two developers, one doing the graphics and the 
other one the game mechanics.

So I don't think that is unreasonable, but the current GC that D 
has to to support to carry existing code bases is not in the same 
ballpark. If you want to create a dynamic online "streaming" game 
world then you deal with a lot of pointers and lots of caching...

It is not that this cannot change, but as of today that is 
farther away than 1-2 years... IMHO.
