I wonder what the status of dsss is?  dmd 1.029 added a new switch "-
ignore" (which was requested by Gregor a couple of months ago).  Does 
this mean that Gregor will be redisigning a simpler/faster dsss/rebulid 
that uses dmd verbose (and ditches the dmd frontend)?

Hoping we will see something soon. :)
