Hey thanks for the quick reply, Guillaume.

I understand from the project brief though that QtD is a "binding" to Qt.

"QtD is a D binding to the Qt application and UI framework."

Whilst QtD looks like a cool project, my question was really about 
whether D could achieve the same sorts of things that Qt does with its 
meta-object compiler.

In other words, and calling a spade a spade, Qt is a "hack" to make C++ 
more pleasant for GUI.  Would it be possible for D to achieve natively 
the same sorts that Qt does via preprocessing to C++.
