As you all may know I've been working on recompiling D for web services
last few weeks.
Its both good news and bad news.
Reloading definitely possible. With dependency handling using dub.
Its slow. And not in my code sort of way.
You're welcome to atest my speeds that I have gotten so far (older well

webpage and not much more.
I've done a bit of working with it and with 2.066-rc2 got it to the
lower end of 2s.
Atleast from my experience with this, its dmd thats actually taking the
I know my code isn't the best and optimized, so I have compared mine
against dmd itself. 100-200ms difference normally.
For those who don't know why I'm making a fuss over 2 seconds, its
because you actually do notice this when doing web dev stuff. Without
including start up time, this could become a lot larger.
