I'm interested in getting LDC through Play Store! :D

Seriously, thanks to the excellent work you've been doing, this 
may soon be a reality.

When the Vulkan API is officially released I'll make a D binding 
for it (something along the lines of DerelictVulkan) and it would 
be awesome if I can make it available for Android, in addition to 
Linux and Windows. Perhaps such a library (along with sample 
apps) will be useful for you to test the Android support that 
you're developing.

Anyway, I think that both scripts and precompiled binaries are 
useful. Currently I don't have any dev tools on my phone, so I 
would prefer something that I could easily test without external 
dependencies. On the other hand, when I become more interested in 
development for Android, I'll probably use the scripts to get the 
latest LDC from git. I haven't heard about Termux, so I will 
check it.
