What kinds of simplifications (over OpenCL) can and will DCompute offer in this regard?

Over OpenCL: Same benefits it does over standard C
* a not completely insane interface
* generality and parameterisation
* reusability

As to how much of the total power of the FPGA you can use from D compared to VHDL remains to be seen, although it will be interesting to see how well this can cooperate with Luís' DHDL.
