AFAICT this one is going to take a long time. The current DMD code is quite volatile and internal APIs do change over time. Making it a library would be great but if internals are exposed, it would become a barrier to further development. I don't think we're at the point where we're ready to actually work on this just yet. T -- Those who don't understand Unix are condemned to reinvent it, poorly.
