The only coordination in place is that upstream DMD codebase must never
break GDC or LDC's ability to build it and pass the testsuite.

For the time being this is enough.  As for common codebase, we are in a
state of divulging further apart for the first time in a while, but I don't
see it as my role to keep tabs on every change upstream does.  And there
are already some horrible things that need sorting out (or that need
reapplying because they've vanished in the D implementation) but not worth
my efforts until it comes to switching proper.
