Actually it isn't. The strategy ought be centered on demographics
that are most likely to modify the compiler or build solid
The strongest selling point for D right now is that it has moved
from a 1-person project to a 2-person+community project to
(hopefully) a fully community driven project. So where D seems to
be moving you can write a DIP, modify the compiler and have an
impact, with C++, Rust and Go that is highly unlikely. If the D
community can deliver on that, then that would be a real selling
point for many system level programmers who have "pet peeves" in
their daily workday.
One million programmers that expect C# fluidity + one million
the needle. A dozen C++ programmers could.
Of course, a quality IDE experience is important, but right now,
not the most critical aspect.
