Documentation on the extern storage class is both very sparse and very scarce.

* Most documentation is only about extern (C) and is present in an article
about C compatibility or the ABI docs.

* I couldn't find any mention to extern (System) in all the specs.

* extern (C++) is only found in the article about interfacing with C++

* The only mention of extern (D) I found is in the ABI description.

* extern (Windows) is mostly mentioned only in the D for Win32 article.

I think it would be nice to have a central place where all extern (...)
declarations are explained (or at least listed with links to their usage). A
table like the available predefined versions for the version statement would be
nice.
