Hi Szymon,

I don't know if anybody else is working on it and for me it is just a
hobby/fun puzzle to use D in iOS.  I do not write iOS apps for a living
and am not sure where Apple would stand on getting a D-based app through
the App Store review.  It is too early to consider D as a viable iOS
compiler chain.

Right now we are stuck on proper code gen.  Then there will be
implementation of proper thread support, exception handling, thread
local vars, and passing the D runtime/phobos unittests.  And much more.
