[sifts through SVN tree for Terra]

Wow.  Okay, I like where this is going.  My only regret is not enough time to
put my back into it, but maybe I can see what I can contribute.  It certainly
looks like a nice recipe for stone soup anyway.


I also sincerely mean what I stated in that PS.  I think the major thing that is
scaring people away from DWT is the sheer size of the thing, and what that means
for porting the native layer of the library.  If D simply built the GUI
toolchain in much the same way it has everything else (bottom up) we'd already
have a whole crop portable GUI toolkits. :)
