No, it doesn't. The script isn't executed, or if it is there's no 
effect, but the exit code doesn't indicate an error either.
Using  #!/usr/bin/dmd -run  doesn't work either (out of the box) 
if /tmp is mounted noexec.

So you're saying that ldc and gdc are duplicated and hence wasted 
effort ?

In my mind having options and alternatives is as good a thing as 
diversity can be.
