Yes, because in 2008 CUDA and SYSCL were of little importance in 
HPC universe, almost everyone was focused on OpenMP, still 
thought OpenCL would cater with its C only API, and OpenAAC was 
yet to show up.

Unless D comes with this in the package and those logos adopt it, 
just being a better language isn't enough.

It also needs to plug into the libraries, IDEs and GPGPU 
debuggers available to the community.
