BTW, what is the relation of dscanner to DCD? Or more precisely, why are they separate tools?..

Originally there was just dscanner. One of the things that it did was autocomplete. It wasn't very good at this for a variety of reasons. One of them was that being a plain command-line tool, it had to re-parse EVERYTHING every time you asked for autocomplete.

Over time I split the project three ways: The parser/lexer/ast is now libdparse, the autocomplete functionality is in DCD, and static analysis and other stuff is in dscanner.
