FLTK2 bindings for D

I do not think it is competing too much. Native gui is necessary and
important for D to collect momentum. Momentum brings more native work.
But seems many ports to native D are started and then cancelled (no
time, no interest, no people), so I see bcd very necessary.
I did not know bcd. I am interested if binding to 3d engine like
Irrlich, Ogre or similar could be generated. I might give it a try.
