Well, there is a way: create something that automatically downloads, 
extract, and set the executable bits on the proper file. This is 
exactly what D for Xcode does. If anyone is interested, I've put the 
scripts it uses for that here: <http://michelf.com/docs/dmd-install/>

I expect they'll work fine on Linux, but you may want to change the 
DX_INSTALL_DIR variable in the dmd1download.sh and dmd2download.sh 
files (D for Xcode installs in /Library/Compilers). Feel free to adapt 
and redistribute the scripts as you like; they're available under GPL 2 
or later, same as the rest of D for Xcode.
