That's great. A few comments:

* Since DMD 2.073.0 (I believe) Dub is included

* I don't know how the dub.json file that DDT creates looks like. But 
usually with Dub you build a release build with the following command: 
"dub build -b release". See "dub build -h" for more information, there 
are some other build types available as well

* About the disadvantages, in my opinion, native widgets is an 
advantage. I guess there are two kinds of people, those that like native 
widgets and those who don't
