Thanks very much!  Will try it out and get back to you on my experience.

... maybe worth coordinating with the D Language Packagers team?  Rather than a
dedicated gdc PPA, in the longer term it might be better to organise D stuff into
a 'D-language' PPA for stable packages (up-to-date ldc, gdc, libtango, ...) and
'D-language-beta' for bleeding-edge stuff like this.

You mentioned that this gdc breaks other D packages on the system -- what should I
watch out for?

Thanks again and best wishes,
