If you add to all that "No, really, it's ok, there's this project that forked one of the compilers. No, it's not the reference compiler. There's just this bit of non-standard syntax to learn that's neither C nor D", then the chances of convincing any "normal" engineer are 0.
It is the reference compiler though (which is the frontend), the backend is different, but they don't want the dmc backend do they? Also recently it started to use pragma and import syntax, which are both D.
