D tuning query

I know a lot of players are fond of D tuning, and I've certainly heard some great stuff done with it. I'm under the impression, though, that D tuning is most often used in the key of D, which is fine for solo pieces but pretty limiting when playing with others. 

So, how useful is this tuning for playing in all the other keys?

I posed this question on another forum but didn't get much response.
