Not without more people supporting the development and having interest 
in cross-platform versions.

It seems people have been excited about the windows version, and it gets 
some use.  But people are all too eager to use the library, and yet 
loathe to help support the internals or maintain the source.  I don't 
think one or two people is even close to being sufficient to keep a DWT 
port going.  It needs a whole group of highly motivated individuals 
(which doesn't appear to exist).

I don't mean to be pessimistic, but DWT is a non-trivial framework and 
requires constant maintenance or it will get out of date in no time as 
the DMD compiler improves.
