I've personally answered ~18% of all D questions on Stack 
Overflow and while I don't have easily-accessible metrics for the 
other D help channels, it is likely a similar proportion.

I'm keenly aware that there might be explanations to new users, 
and I know I'm probably going to be answering about 1/6th of them 

Just like I frequently explain why `int[] a = [1,2].map!(a => 
a*2);` doesn't compile. There's a reason for that, so it is a 
chance for them to learn something new. Or they can just slap 
`.array` on it and move on. But if they are willing to learn 
something new, D opens up a whole new world of possibilities.
