I wouldn't want dmd commit rights for the same reason. I tend to think that
commit rights to dmd and those to the standard library should be separate
things, as there's quite a difference between what kind of understanding is
required to work on Phobos from what is required to work on dmd (though in
most cases, someone with commit rights to dmd should probably have commit
rights to the libraries).
In any case, welcome aboard!
