hmmm... underscore in API methods is a bit ugly...

Isn't it possible to make it in oposite way, so that original methods will
be prefixed and D Api will be clean?

Probably for original methods you could use prefix: 'swt'

SwtSetText(String str); (Probably nicer - it is possible that someone will
want to use also this signature)
swt_setText(String str);

and provide overloaded D methods:
void setText( char[] str );
void setText( wchar[] str );
void setText( dchar[] str );
void setText( String str ); //I mean here string from Tango. Maybe it usable
in this context?
