People who GPU program are indeed a small group. But you do NOT entice
other people to try it, when they do not even know a language has this

Lets post "D has DCompute" or "D has D-GPU"... on Reddit, ycombinator
and other forum or news site.
What do you think people will more likely click on?
So you don't post either of those titles and instead post "D has
DCompute: Native heterogeneous computing on GPUs and more, hassle free!"
"D has the invariant qualifier: It means immutable".
