I wish to announce version 1.0.0 of CodeBuilder. As the code originally came from ProtocolBuffer I've now eat some dog food by utilizing the library within ProtocolBuffer. I've also put in unittests and a readme.

The Dub package provides two configurations, one for mixins and one as a file writer. When using the file writer it is of no interest to modify the line numbers as you'll actually have a D source file to look at.


Change Highlights

* Reduced complexity. Originally I was trying to store generated code in to many different places, There was the current state, the stack that held items which would later be popped into the current state, a build so code could be structured before putting it on the stack, and the current state could be returned by asking for it's memory. All that goes away and instead another CodeBuilder can be put or pushed into another.

* The string used for indentation can be specified (but is global for all code builders.

* The code string isn't created while putting the string into the builder. Instead it is stored as an operation that is used to generate the string when calling finalize(). This makes indentation consistent when putting one CodeBuilder into another.

I'd also like to note that Google's Protocol Buffer source has a similar need, but I like my API better :)
