I would caution against putting very much weight in Reddit opinions - there's people who will never use D and just look for excuses to justify their prejudice and there's people who think they want something, but don't really have any idea
(this is common in feature requests, as I'm sure you know)

That comment, in particular, seems very questionable to me. dstats at least compiles out of the box and has github activity within the last few months. It has a lot of templates, so maybe actually using it would reveal compilation
problems, but at quick glance it seems to work.

I know it's a tough call. But I do see these sorts of comments regularly, and it is a fact that there are too many D libraries gone to seed that won't compile anymore, and that makes us look bad.

If that it's the problem, it's time to go ahead with an explicit support for the work done in dfix, no? It's not a silver bullet, but it's a clear indication to the potential adopters that there's a plan, and actively indicate that definitely "we care" about that particular issue, common to every language.
