Me too. D is important because other system languages suck (compared to D :) and DWT is important for D, because it lacks good GUI otherwise.

I don't know what you mean by porting it to DWT. I used it inside DWT with mixed success. It is usable inside DWT but I did't make enough effort because I was doing all my GUI work with HTMLayout and DWT is too heavy just to create a parent window for HTMLayout. Now I am doing something else - something like XUL using DWT and TiScript (the scripting engine of Sciter), but I don't have much time so it is going slowly. Otherwise it is working very well with almost automatic binding of DWT to TiScript. I don't know if I will be able to finish it but I will share it anyway when it becomes mature (or I'm totally unable to continue).
