Would that work for all the websites? I.e. digitalmars.com, dlang.org,

The one cost and you could cover everything. StartSSL is novel in that
all they do is verify your identity then let you generate as many
certificates as you want. Most other CAs charge on a per certificate
basis. I'm pretty happy with StartSSL apart from their terrible
website.

This is true (I do it on my server, hosting a couple domains ATM).

However, unless they've changed it since I last looked, you can't do
subdomains (other than www.*) with their free cert.

No, you can use any subdomain, you can't use wildcards, but you can get
as many subdomains as you want. To use several subdomains in one server,
your server must support SNI[1], but any modern webserver should support
it.

I've tried to get a subdomain cert from them, but their system
complained that I already had a cert from them for the same domain.


SNI *is* necessary, of course, to host multiple SSL-certs on the same server (regardless of whetheer they're separate subdomains or suparate regular domains), but I already have my server doing that (one cert for each of two different domains).
