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.
I am both low-level and high level, but D's primary advantage is
that it allows low level programming.
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.
Do you consider Angular to be low level? It was used in 100s if
not 1000s of applications, but was considered inadequate and
scrapped in favour of Angular2. This is the typical pattern for
libraries and frameworks.
