I think that you might be able to link code with various other compatible, open source licenses against it, but you definitely can't link any proprietary code aganist it. GPL really makes more sense for programs than for libraries for precisely that reason. And most D libraries are likely to be Boost licensed, since that's the license used by Phobos and generally favored by the D community. There's nothing wrong with releasing a library under the GPL if you really want to, but it seriously limits its usefulness.
Yes, that's correct. It would be fine if everything used GPL, but that's not the world we live in. Which makes the license not very practical.
