According to http://llvm.org/docs/LangRef.html#callingconv

"More calling conventions can be added/defined on an as-needed basis, to 
support Pascal conventions or any other well-known target-independent 

Even though a calling convention may not be merged with the source tree 
before D increases in popularity, a LLVM D compiler may carry a patch 
for the calling convention with it.
