Hmm, there seems there's a bit too much resistance indeed :/ Why 
is that? THere's so much you can do with rdmd.

The only reason for rdmd really is that it comes with a default 
installation on osx. Asking people to install the dmd package via 
osx is already some friction, but then telling them to do rund as 
well.... well basically we just go to python.

I could maybe make a brew out of rund though ... 🤔
