I use vim for D coding (well, all coding... and actually, I'm also
typing this in vim), and I don't even use a syntax file.  D is not like
Java where you need an IDE to deal with the verbosity; it's actually
quite comfortable to write, and if formatted properly, easy to read
without needing any special highlighting.

But that's just my personal preference.  YMMV.
