I guess I would use C# now if starting all over, because you don't find 
any good support or examples in other languages anymore. But as I said, 
it's a way to actually work with D for me, and it doesn't seem 
productive to rewrite it in C# (I'm not an expert in that language anyway).

Debugging the extension works both with the native and the mixed mode 
debugger, but the debug information emitted by dmd is sub-standard. I've 
made a number of pull requests years ago, but they have been mostly ignored.
