I stopped using WinMain with D a long time ago. It's not
necessary. If you always use `main`, then both linkers will
provide you with a console subsystem app by default. That's
particularly useful during development. You can add a
configuration to your dub.json that turns on the windows
subsystem for both linkers.
For OPTLINK (x86) you only need to pass to the linker
For the MS linker (x86_mscoff, x86_64) you need to that and you
need to specify that the entry point is `main`, because it will
expect `WinMain` when you specify the windows subsystem. You
can do that with `/ENTRY:mainCRTStartup`
All of this should be added on dub docs with small snippets and
explanation as a section dedicated to Windows and maybe even on D
docs as well, because you know, it shows up again and again from
time to time.
