Yes, the pure name is not really an advantage.
I am not sure in the moment, how to proceed with this project. Shall I ...
1. Stay with TioPort, and have SWT as a subproject?
2. make a project "Dejavu", that maintains all java derived sources and
also D libs building on top of this code?
3. make a "SWT" (or use DWT?) project that only is for SWT?
This is why I was posting this question.

Probably the char vs. String issue will go away.
I am working on it.

renaming the newsgroup makes sense. I second that.
