I'm always looking for contributors, so if anyone is interested in lending a hand feel free to join the party.

Is terminix already 'officially' packaged by any distro ?

It has been packaged for Debian though there is still an issue with LDC to be sorted out:

The biggest challenge is getting D's tool chain supported, the release of 1.0 of LDC is what is making this possible for Terminix since DMD is a non-starter for most distros.

integration in distribution could be a good signal, what a say, Excellent signal, for the D language. I know that some people here are mostly starving at commercial usage...but for me such tools written in D and available in linux distros via their package manager would be a much more significant sign.
