If github even won't show the file you clearly has too much in one file. 
More than 34k lines of code (looking at the latest svn), are you kidding 
me. That's insane, std.datetimem should clearly be a package. I don't 
know why Andrei and Walter keeps insisting on having so much code in one 

It takes about 10 seconds to get syntax highlighting at the bottom of 
the file in TextMate.
