Do you mean to actually call it DWT, and do s/SWT/DWT/g on the source?
I don't see what would be gained by doing that. DWT and Tioport's SWT
are not compatible, and I think it would be good to use different names
for them too. I don't see why it can't be called SWT even if it's
ported to D. The docs use SWT anyway.
To name some differences: DWT uses char instead of String, supports
delegates in some places, and it uses Phobos instead of Tango. It also
uses the 'import dwt.all;' idiom, which tioport doesn't. I'm not saying
that I want an swt.all module, by all means, and my own DWT project is
already ported to tioport SWT.
Since DWT seems to be a dead project, I think that it's okay for SWT to
use this newsgroup. Or even better, if Walter would create a d.D.gui
