MathiasM, relative to most other posts, this thread has seen a very 
strong and positive reaction. Thanks again for offering this to the D 

A couple of questions...

Why did you decide to base the port off of FLTK1 instead of FLTK2 (I 
don't know the history of FLTK1 vs. 2)? Is there a risk that the D port 
would basically become obsolete before it's done?

And how can I best start contributing to the port right now w/o impeding 
your progress, duplicating work or otherwise stepping on your toes? An 
answer of "you can't" is fine too <g>
