Just brain storming (i.e. some output may be nonsense):

- dimpc (pronounced "dimps")

- cimport
- cimpleD
- DiCe (D importing C external / extensions - you would want the 'e' at
the end ;))
- CeeD (as in "seed")
- CeDe

I think I'm going to stick with DStep.

I do understand where the name is coming from, but (as has been pointed out by others already) it offers no clue as to what it is doing. Looking at the name it's anybody's guess what it is. It's easier to remember a tool, if it has a reference to what it's all about, e.g. Cygwin, htod.

[2] in case it will go beyond C/Obj-C, we need no reference to C

It will hopefully support C++ as well.
