A newcomer to D could rightfully conclude that comma is a module separator and the following is the correct syntax to import multiple symbols.

What if you have something like
import std.stdio, std.conv : to, parse;
and there is a module at the top-level named parse?

Then you have to import it on a separate line, or import it first.

It's why I put one import per line. It's second nature to me, I don't even think of putting imports on the same line.

But I think the better solution to this is instead making imports that collect other imports together. For instance, I rarely import std.algorithm.X, I usually use std.algorithm, even for selective imports. That seems more natural, and I don't have to look up which submodule it's in.
