I really think that would be wonderful.

Infact we use FLTK front-end for a software we developed inhouse to
display 'resin' flow in simulations of composite manufacturing ! Currently it is
written in C++

If a D native version of FLTK is available, I would really use it for all
front-ends from now on. 

I am really interested and would be your first user.
