I can't agree with Lars "Snowman" Igesund. DDL is not ready for 
production use. (Especially related to ix based systems)

Windows DMD created DLL's are almost un-useable.
No classes, no threads, no exeption handling.

I am using DMD DLLs nevertheless (simply by creating wrappers functions 
around classes), but in general I would like to say:

Using DMD shared libs is like bying tools from Shitty Butthead very LTD
and I am afraid the situation will not change for quit a while.
