i.e I'm very, very used to doing very complex things. complex, is my day at the office.

But even I couldn't get my head around how to compile D from source on Windows ;-)

I do have it compling just fine on my freebsd system, and multiple different linux's I use. But Windows? Forget it. Someone will need to explain in detail how that is actually done - I no longer have the patience for working that one out.

As a counterpoint, I _did_ manage to compile DMD, Phobos and Druntime on Windows as a lowly university student using only the instructions from the wiki, and I'm no genius. It _is_ possible and not very difficult as long as you follow the instructions to the letter.

Of course this was also before you needed to have HOST_DC defined in your path, and the repo layout was a bit different, but it's not an insurmountable problem. And if you run into problems, you can come here or go on IRC to ask for help.
