That's good news!  I'm interested in seeing gdc support for dwt. :) 
Unfortunately gdc lags quite severely behind the dmd releases... but gdc 
support will be an important part of any other cross-platform ports of 
DWT (until other technologies mature, like perhaps dil and llvmdc).

Thanks for trying this out. :)
