ran htod.exe on jni.h - this looks sane to me. Some concepting issues
but is a step forward in computer science, so what I do is just list
that file on the command line to C:\dmd\bin\dmd.exe along with what it
produces on EZ-Twain dot h along with other things I might write that
would make more sense to me as a file scope code base, the compiler
de-facto takes file scope into account?

In other words, in file foo.d I have a function, on which I want to
feed it a bar from compilation unit recognition - this is sorta
obvious for a compiler writer, seems to me to even throw some cs
301's, but redeclaration in each file scope would lead to the same
issues we are trying to parallelize.

I have a rich skill base in subtle nuances of parallelizing work, this
is the time to fix this. If it gets broken later, one may need your
burger-flippin resume' to be ready to deliver.
