You may wanna reconsider and wait for VS2014. ;)

"In the Visual Studio "14" CTP we have fully implemented the C99 
Standard Library, with the exception of any library features that 
depend on compiler features not yet supported by the Visual C++ 
compiler (notably, <tgmath.h> is not implemented). There are 
undoubtedly some remaining conformance issues--we know of a few, 
including that _Exit is missing and wcstok has the wrong 
signature, and we are working to fix these."

These are pretty good news indeed! By relaxing the D real type to 
FP64 in LDC2 for Windows and relying on the VS2014+ CRT we could 
probably get away with a minor number of hacks in druntime/Phobos 
(and get rid of a few legacy workarounds)! :))
