I think it's about time I gave back to this wonderful community.

I'm offering a $50 bounty on this.
(Preferably Bitcoins, but I'll use bountysource if desired.)

Has to be called -minimal
Has to fulfill Walter's original post. (listed below)
Has to split the separate parts into different flags as well as -minimal(-nogc, -nomoduleinfo, etc. Naming is left to the implementer).

This seems to be a good idea and has lots of support from the community, would anyone like to chip in a few more bucks?

I haven't set the bounty yet, depends on if multiple people chip in. I'll probably set it sometime tonight.

Let me know what y'all think, am I leaving anything out?

I've toyed with this idea for a while, and wondered what the interest there is in something like this.

The idea is to be able to use a subset of D that does not require any of druntime or phobos - it can be linked merely with the C standard library. To that end, there'd be a compiler switch (-betterC) which would enforce the subset.

(First off, I hate the name "better C", any suggestions?)

The subset would disallow use of any features that rely on:

1. moduleinfo
2. exception handling
3. gc
4. Object

I've used such a subset before when bringing D up on a new platform, as the new platform didn't have a working phobos.

What do you think?
