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.
