I've set up my own project on Bitbucket.  I've made enough changes to 
build my DWT app on Windows, and it's works like a charm.  A lot of the 
Phobos code was already there, and I've added what was needed for my 
use.  Since DWT enforces that all GUI code is run in the same thread 
(usually the main thread), I didn't need to add shared and __gshared 
that many places.

I had to add a lot of casts because D2 compilers are stricter about 
narrowing conversions.  In some places Java's char type was kept as 
char, and not changed into wchar.  I've changed the ones I came across 
to wchar, to avoid truncating code points that are outside of ASCII. 
Some conversions between char[] and wchar had to be added.

The String alias is D2 string, which works just fine.
