Sorry for getting into middle of the thread.

I just would like to say that it is a great news! After discovering that 
for Java:
double sum = 0.0;
for (int i = 0; i < 10; i++) sum += 0.1;

sum is equal: 0.9999999999999999

I am looking at D with greater and greater sentiment :-) SWT and good 
precision of calculations is necessary for my program...

It's also possible that I will be able to help with some smaller things...
