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 
newsgroup. :)
