Anders, thanks for the reality check.  My sincerest apologies if that 
looked at all like FUD - I've used WxWindows before, so I'm actually 
quite happy that you took the time to bring it over to D.

I looked into wxWindows a very long time ago, and was convinced that it 
was strictly LGPL licensed.  I now understand that it has an exception 
that makes the license non-viral enough for static linking to a 
proprietary or even a project under a completely different license*. 
The verbiage on the wxd site clears this up considerably (thanks).

That is, unless I'm completely mistaken?  :)

(* IMO, this could be clearer in the license text with some qualifying 
statements in the "WxWindows License", but I have been known to be 
rather dense when it comes to legalese.)
