In the last weeks Walter has written several patches for the 
back-end of DMD, to better optimize programs, but I didn't see 
benchmarks to justify those changes.

ldmd2 is just a wrapper that calls ldc2. It gives a similar

-L/STACK:1000000 and more.

(How do you increase stack space on Windows with ldc2?)
