If you can write C#, it would be interesting to add it as a feature in 

It's an IDE engine, there is also a parser (written in C#) called 
D_Parser as a submodule. I use mono-d all the time to work on my 
libraries. Currently the refactoring feature in monodevelop is pretty 
much useless because nobody implemented it I guess.
