I've been using the D support in Thrift in the official
repository in my database testing. I've had no trouble using
Thrift in D to talk to Cassandra and Hbase. It's quite
straightforward and easy to do.
The one thing I've had to change is when Thrift names a variable
"version". Since that's a keyword in D I just go in a rename it
in the generated D sources.
