For me, it is the indirect value I reaped by lurking in D's
forums. There used to be some interesting discussions by language
theorists that pushed me to learn and appreciate quite a bit of
"abstract nonsense" and shown how many of what I thought was a
cool new thing was just a hackish reincarnation of an old and
well explored concept (including mixin templates).
