Claiming that there are only two build targets, default and unittest, is 
not correct. Perhaps it's only possible to build these two targets from DDT.

I don't think it's the right approach to hijack the "unittest" target to 
build a release build. If the issue is that DDT can only build two 
targets than that should: A. be fixed, B. be properly explained in your 
docs and that it's possible to build the release target from the command 

Since DDT, I assume, is leveraging Dub to do all the dependency 
tracking, configuration and building it's very simple to build in the 
same way as DDT does on the command line.
