Obviously if you build an independent work you are free to
chose a license and no one building any work off of yours or
not can cause you problems.
I agree with you that the GPL is badly written, but we mostly
don't use it, basically only for the gdc compiler itself, so
not a big deal here.
Yes, but D uses mostly bindings and if any of those bindings use
it then It effects the D program that uses it. Since many of the
bindings are written in C/C++ one can expect that many of them
use the GPL license.
The boost license seems acceptable but who knows? Look how many
were "swindled" by GPL.
