It is probably not a good idea to bring more attention to it… some might end up agreeing with Stroustrup.

"static if" is a troubled construct and too close to macros to be a good language design feature, it is in the same bag as string mixins. "if(constexpr…)" + concepts etc better fit C++.

Yes, this a  better idea. Write code examples that compare common C++ patterns to D where D looks cleaner.
