Great! I see you've started moving the backend to D too, about 5% done so far.

How far do you plan to go in bringing D idioms to the compiler itself? A simple grep shows 3 C-style `for` loops in the frontend for every D `foreach`. Do you plan on using ranges and algorithms, which likely means relying on Phobos at some point? Any plans to turn on the GC someday? Please enlighten us on your roadmap for how far you want to take the D conversion process.
