I am not sure if that is the right motivation. Sounds like
recipe for bloat. Good libraries evolve from being used in real
applications. Many applications.
sayeth a low-level guy (if I understand correctly), which will
certainly create a distinct perspective about what you would like
to see in the standard library, and yet this may not be the right
thing for the language as a whole.
fwiw, people that do use D on a serious scale have remarked that
the richness of the standard library (even as it stands today)
was a major advantage - in bioinformatics, at a London hedge
fund, and I think AdRoll.
