An interesting point. Probably should be possible. While addition and
subtraction operators are specified in terms of durations division and
multiplication are defined with integers not other durations. I'm thinking it
would have to be defined like this
  Duration / Duration --> Integer

Anyway d.minutes() should do what you want.
